Trees purify the air; they also purify the mind . . . if you want to save your world, you must save the trees.
– The Trees of Endor, J.R.R. Tolkien
The TreeSpirit Project is several things:
• A collection of fine art photographs by Jack Gescheidt celebrating human interdependence with trees, and all of nature. Of course, people are part of nature; we human beings are not separate from the natural world as we often think or feel we are.
Regular people, from all walks of life, all volunteers, bare themselves to boldly, playfully feel connected again: to trees, to each other, to themselves. Read more.
• The experiences people have while making the photographs. Read Testimonials from participants who report incredible thoughts and feelings during TreeSpirit photo events.
• A mission. Inviting people to make TreeSpirit photographs and share their experiences helps individuals, society as a whole, and the environment we—and all living creatures—depend on. Read more Mission.
