I have a patron who is looking for a children's book that she read to her children approximately 20 some years ago.  The story is told from the viewpoint of the trees.  An old tree dies and she is gently laid to rest as the other trees use their limbs to lay her down.  The tree's death was renewing the earth and gave life to other living things. The part that stands out to the patron is fantastic illustrations described as something from a Rembrandt painting.  She states they were in color and looked more like pen and ink drawings rather than paintings.

Other than that - no title, no author, nothing.  Thank you for your time and consideration!
