"Watching worldwide deforestation led my determined effort to create my own forest - tree by tree - of which these are examples. My hope is that these strong, upscale black and white images will serve as an icon to call attention to the tree as oxygen provider, shelter, food and medicine for man and creature provider, shade to cool the earth provider, moisture preserver, carbon dioxide diffuser and that it will survive to inspire artists, poets, historians, botanists, and all who have a spiritual connection to the life force of the tree."
