Don’t Be Mean, Keep Trees Green.

Photographer's Statement:


This picture shows how important it’s for people to keep the forest healthy.  Behind the dam you can see all the dry dead areas but thankfully, you can see the park just below that has plenty of beautiful and green trees. If you go just a minute down the road from this location you would never think the land could be so dry due to the beautiful greens.
