Originally, this post was inspired by a girlfriend who recommended I immediately go out and see the movie The Tree of Life. Well, I went and saw it, and if not for the gorgeous imagery, I might have walked out of the theatre! Luckily, the movie did not spoil my passion and adoration for trees. Especially pictures of trees.Before the images of trees, here are a few tips on how you can save them:

Educate yourself. How can you solve the problem when you don’t know what the problem is? Luckily, information on going green, environmentalism and sustainability is everywhere. Visit for more tips on going green, or watch BBC’s “Planet Earth”.

Change to Fluorescent Bulbs. If every house in the United States changed all of the light bulbs in their house to Fluorescent bulbs, that would be equivalent to taking one million cars off the streets.

Give things away. Take items you haven’t used in a while to Goodwill. Recycle that old sweater!

Plant a tree. It’s good for the air, can keep you cool, and it’s fun to climb!


I shot the last photograph while wandering in Denver, Colorado.
