Call for Submissions – Festival #33

Can we really be at #33 already? How did this happen? Well, tree bloggers never run out of things to say about trees, so the show must go on! Next month it travels to local ecologist, a blog with a unique mission under the able direction of “Georgia Silvera Seamans, former urban forester and now doctoral candidate studying the evolution of street tree provision and conceptualization in California cities.” Email your tree-related links to her at info [at] localecology [dot] org, or use the online submission form. The deadline is February 27. It probably helps to put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email. And as always, remember that you need not be the author of a blog post, photoset or webpage to submit a link. We’re always grateful for any help finding good links.


This humble blog recently earned a spot on a list of Top 100 Botany Blogs. Since the blog part of this site consists entirely of boring and highly repetitive announcement posts such as this one, I’d have to assume that the compiler was actually much more interested in the links in our right sidebar: all the past editions of the festival, and the many hundreds of blogs and websites they link to. Bolstering this assumption is the inclusion of some of our favorite tree bloggers in the same list. Also included is the blog carnival for plants, Berry Go Round. In general, it look like a list well worth bookmarking.

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.
