Out of every tree in the world I chose you

Photographer's Statement:

I Connect to trees because they are everywhere that I go. I see then in the morning when I wake up, I see them on my way to school, I see them during lunch, I see them on my way home from school and everywhere else. Tree’s make me healthier because they release oxygen and take in carbon dioxide and humans breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. As humans we can help tree’s by not littering or damaging them in any way. We can also help them by trying our hardest to prevent wild fires in any way possible. It is important to take care of tree’s because they are the growing foundation of our lives.
