The Station Fire in the Angeles National Forest was part of a series of wildfires that engulfed Southern California in 2009. TreePeople became involved to help replant some of the forest to help speed recovery. For the blue shirts, I created lines radiating from the sapling to show the power of trees in transforming a landscape. For the green shirts, I wanted to show the importance of the native California trees that TreePeople planted around Los Angeles.
TreePeople is a local Los Angeles non-profit that used the power of trees to transform the city and the people who live there. They see the urban forest as being vital to the city’s wellbeing and host informative workshops and lead tree plantings.
