    I cut down trees, I eat my lunch, I like to press wild flowers…

    Only if you don’t use up someone else’s air.

    So, then…. should… EVERY… tree and vine and flora and fauna should be allowed to grow, to outgrow everything and everyone, including animals and man? And what about the grains and trees and vegetation that puts food on our plate? Should we not pick them? What about the medicines that come from them? Our bedsheets? Our clothes?
    There seems to be good reason why there’s winds in place to shift landscapes, and why picking flowers in reasonable amounts is a part of the balance that keeps our planet in order… why there’s wildfires, both natural and man made (the controlled, legal kind, mind you…) and though not everyone may put faith in it, and this is JUST to give a reference and prove this point, but even the Bible has instances that show that these things are okay, including the picking of flowers….
    (Gen. 1:28-30; Matt. 6: 28-30)

    So say DeSylva, Brown and Henderson. And if you don’t know who they are, you should. Each is in the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. This link will explain about the Hollywood version of their life story.

    flower is protected It is illegal to harm that flower in any way
    Is it the same in the USA

    Curiously, there are a BUNCH (please pardon the pun) of internet “urban legends” going about about the question of legality of picking… but many reliable sources of information that show that in the US, it is not illegal, outside of picking them on private property (more of the trespassing laws, not because of picking), or the wildlife/ national park preserves, or the endangered species laws, or the public safety laws (e.g., picking them on the side of a busy highway)…
    Here is a sample provided from this site:
    May I ask if maybe any of these reasons are the basis for why it’s illegal to do so in Canada? And may I also ask if it also has to do with the protecting of Canadian emblems, as well? I’d be curious to find out this, as well…always love interesting facts…

    Now, you know that not everybody would do that at once, LET ALONE think about it….
    incidentally, there are billions of microscopic critters… I’d dare to venture that there are as many individual flowers (talking individual ones, not number of species) as this, well, lets say countless….

    “Continue searching the internet, ask Canadians why?”

    Not sure you’re saying this as a question….. but…. I asked a Canadian about their laws, same way a Canadian asked about US laws…

    …. and if no response (not counting anybody else being wise guy of course), then my actual physical reference books will suffice… although the internet is around….

    I like to think that the bees already got the pollen from those flowers and are already on their way to the other wild flowers.
