Festival 65

Festival 65 at local ecologist comes to you live from the land of snow-broken trees, as we in the northeast of North America recover from a freak storm — another reminder that “global weirding” will be hard on trees and forests. But it wasn’t all gloom and doom among tree bloggers this month. Contributors to this edition share photos and stories of a forest of giant beeches in England, the oldest Banyan tree in Chennai, a mile-long allee of loblolly pines and live oaks in Louisiana, an Arkansas persimmon tree, and more. Go visit.

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.
