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 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.
