Healthy Tree, I See

Photographer's Statement:

We need trees because they help us breathe and they circulate oxygen and carbon dioxide.   People need oxygen so we can live and have a good life. This is a pine tree. I smelt pollen. I heard birds chirping. I smelt pine. I was at home and it was snowing.
