Celebration Of Trees
I have to see a bit of nature every day to maintain my inner balance. Whether I am in the city or exploring outside, trees have a soothing power over me. The relationship between human kind and nature is crucial to our survival as a species and fundamental to my daily life. On exhibit here are a Kauri tree from a rain forest in New Zealand and a Dawn Redwood at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, Massachusetts.
Throughout the world trees reduce air temperature, shade surfaces, absorb noise, reduce glare, absorb potentially harmful gases like carbon dioxide and provide habitat for animals. Their beauty transcends time and distance throughout the world.
