Photographer's Statement:

The more tree’s we have the more life we will have and the healthier the tree is the healthier we will be. If you think about it tree’s aren’t just for climbing and used for fire wood and paper. Tree’s are life and tree’s are why we are still alive. If we keep cutting down tree’s there will no longer be human existence. Tree’s are a living thing just like us that’s why their as healthy as us and that’s also why we are so healthy because tree’s help pervert the gas form building up in our atmosphere so we can breathe. In my opinion my photo shows a lot of that.
