Photographer's Statement:

Trees are wonderful living beings that feel pain, and emotions, and fear. Trees are very much like humans in this sense. This photo reminds me of the theme, “Healthy Tree Healthy Me” because if trees feel the same emotions as humans if trees can be happy, healthy, and scared, so can people.
