Festival 49: Favorite Trees

Seven times seven is a magic number in many cultures, and so it is fitting that the 49th edition of the Festival of the Trees be filled with magic and poetry — and art and science too. Yvonne has rounded up everything from Ents to Cambodian tree-temples to a story about her grandfather’s homemade elderberry wine. Go look.

By coincidence, July 1 is also Canada Day. Canada is, we believe, the only country with a tree leaf on its flag. Go, Canada!

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.
