The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the next best time is now – A Chinese proverb.This series of small, iconic trees represent the fragility of this natural resource that is both beloved and destroyed by man. With a human-like quality, the tree stands bravely alone, huddled in small clusters or confined to a plante. Strong but powerless, the tree is created by nature but often falls victim to mankind. In return, the tree is the ultimate metaphor for man, strong yet powerless to the forces of nature.
