The 39th edition of the Festival of the Trees is live at Arboreality. This is Jade’s fourth time hosting the blog carnival (see the sidebar of Arboreality for links to the other three editions), and I think she really outdid herself this time.

This month I have invited people to seek out what is hidden (or lurking) among the trees, and share a glimpse of a secret with us. By inviting others to reveal a secret, a discovery, or a dream, it is my hope that we can illuminate hidden (or perhaps, merely forgotten) connections between each other and our world.

Plan on spending a couple hours browsing the links and leaving comments — this is a very full and thought-provoking edition. Which isn’t to say it doesn’t also contain lots of fun stuff, such as Jade’s dinosaur theme park photos, a jungle bridge woven from living tree roots, and a video of a hollow chestnut in Portugal disgorging ten people. Go check it out!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.
