Trees, trees, trees! I love trees!! Little trees. Big trees. Old trees. Tree skeletons. I weep inside to see a beautiful tree being cut down.

All but two image were captured on Hawaii's Big Island. One on Kauai and one on Maui.

A wide-ranging portrait of trees and "snapshots" of their interactions with and responses to their environments over the years - sometimes illustrating their tenacity and adaptability in survival. A most interesting variety of trees and landscapes, beautifully photographed.
