I must confess I have a love of trees. I have fond memories of Arbor Day while at primary school; all students took part in planting trees in the school surrounds. I was taught that trees purified the air. I was also taught that the Amazon jungle was considered the “lungs of the earth”. So why are we so quick to clear the forests and jungles?

The images above are of trees all found at the Botanic Gardens in Colac, Victoria, Australia.

  1. I have a special love for trees too! Just to see an ancient tree that has been rooted to the same spot for years and have weathered all of life’s storms and yet remain steadfastly strong and serene gives me strength. Thank you for this beautiful collection. Sharon
