BLURB

Kiri has a plan. Global warming is his last concern because he will lead his own revolution, he is one of a kind and has amazing qualities: grows very fast, is able to regenerate even when burned to the ravages of fire, perfectly resists pollution and does not need fertile soil to grow. Kiri's leaves are also rather large, bright and full of nitrogen. The leaves and roots prevent erosion as they fertilize the soil. He could even live to 100 years and regenerate up to 5 times from the same trunk... It seems that Kiri is perfect, right? He just has one problem, Kiri can not grow with other trees around. Big Kiri’s greatness is only for himself, by himself. [Margaret Johnson]
