Photographer's Statement:

To me trees are a very important thing. Trees provide oxygen, shade, and are in general very beautiful living things.  Plants are living things that experience emotion and pain just like humans. Saplings enjoy being together and having the company of other trees just like humans. This shows healthy tree healthy me because, trees and humans are very alike and experience the same emotions.
