The Fall 2021 issue of The Twig is "The Trees Issue," exploring how Sycamore protects and plants trees in southern Indiana. "Trees have lots to teach us — about climate change, historical land use, and fungal ecology, but also about resilience," Land Stewardship Assistant Ellen Bergan explains in "Branching Out," the issue's featured article.

"The connective fungal threads that sustain forests, allowing them to adapt through millennia of change, reflect the strength found in communities. When we’re cognizant of the deeply rooted interconnections between ourselves and nature, our communities become that much greater, giving us the appreciation for the natural world and our responsibility to care for each other."
