Trees are the lungs of our planet. Just as the small blood vessels in our body transfer Oxygen and nutrients, so do trees. There is an uncanny similarity between the shapes of trees and the human body. With tree and plants we can enrich the environment in profound ways. Trees help to regulate the temperature, the flow of water into the atmosphere and into the ground. They provide a microcosm for animals and insects to live. The great trees are the coral reefs of the land, providing a sustainable long term solution to our planet. Unfortunately we are destroying them at an unprecedented rate. I strongly encourage anyone to plant a tree or create a garden. As a photographer, the saddest thing is to photograph something that no longer exists. It's up to us, to be proactive and stop the destruction and help to regenerate natures great gift. Whether it is done in a small or large way, anything is better than nothing .
