Do you have a favorite tree? A tree that has played a critical role in your life and development? A tree that’s always been near by?
Forest for the Trees an online, crowdsourced map telling the stories of our most culturally-significant trees. Anyone who can recall the experience of a special tree can contribute a story. Explore our relationship with trees-experiential, historical, magical, and metaphorical.
This story map was developed by local artist, Katherine Wimble Fox, as part of SoCoCulture’s Engaging Trees Initiative. This initiative seeks to draw attention to the cultural significance of local trees, groves and forests, as tracts of wooded land seem to fall victim to development pressures every day.
