Photographer's Statement:

It’s Springtime!  The trees are energizing me to go outside and enjoy them. I love the flowers, the canopy for shade and the ability to climb them.  I like to climb so high that I can look out and see more trees. I feel great when I’m in a tree. The birds and the animals enjoy the trees too. It’s important that I’m careful when I climb trees in order to keep them healthy. I would be sad without trees in my life.
