Festival #23 – (Not Quite) 10,000 Trees

Kthulu beechSexy maples, enormous magnolias, the world’s oldest living tree, the death of a baobab, specular displays of redbud — these are a few of the arboreal marvels on display in the latest edition of the Festival of the Trees, hosted at 10,000 Birds. Complex conservation issues take center stage in several of the linked posts. For example, what kind of street trees are the best for wildlife, and are they also the ones that sequester the most carbon dioxide? Should the National Arbor Day Foundation be distributing non-native trees? And how can we help restore the endangered Atlantic Forest of Brazil? Ponder these questions and more at Festival #23.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
