Photographer's Statement:

Trees are an essential part of our everyday life. Not only do they provide shade on a hot day and a place to climb, but they also supply food and oxygen we thrive on. One of the most well-known fruits that comes from a tree is an apple. They are juicy, sweet, and can help someone maintain their health. However, good apples can only grow on good trees. Therefore, healthy tree, healthy me!
