Photographer's Statement:

What Healthy Tree Healthy Me means to me is that without plants we wouldn’t have majestic animals like deer to admire from afar. Wild animals wouldn’t survive without plant life, plant life feeds almost all wildlife. Without plants like grasses wild animals like cows, sheep, horses and many other types of wildlife would die. The earth’s ecosystem is important for  survival of many people,  mammals, and animals survival.
