Forestry, Woodland, Trees
I have always photographed trees, frequently standing alone on a hilltop, as well as collectively in woodland. When I started visiting Scotland again in 2017, much of the Highlands I saw are without trees, and what forests there are typically have a monoculture, to grow timber for sale as effectively as possible. Seen from a distance, these forest scenes provide their own graphic imprint on the landscape. A few years ago I began to focus on the need for protecting and developing endangered habitat as a key to helping endangered species. Organizations planting trees, such as Trees for Life, are not only looking for more variety, they are also looking to join up disparate pockets of woodland, to enable native animals to enjoy their full range. At the moment, showing the separate pieces is easier than showing the joined up ones.
I have a parallel project forest, tree, wood from North America.
