Photographer's Statement:

In the forest when people see trees, they think of wood and branches. What they don’t see is it’s beauty and all of the little things that makes a tree a tree. All of the colors, in the different seasons, the texture in the leaves, and the warm feelings they bring. Trees are a huge part of the forest and to humans. We should never forget that.
