I’m not an eco type of person but when it comes to trees, I hate seeing them cut down. I’d rather sweep those dried leaves and enjoy the beauty of the trees than not sweep at all. So seeing these photos of ancient trees by Beth Moon means a lot to me.

Beth Moon spent 14 years searching for the world’s oldest trees. She is a photographer based in San Francisco and have been travelling around the globe to capture the most splendid and one of a kind trees that grow in a secluded and exceptional places that defies even the man made structures.

Standing as the earth’s largest and oldest living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on a greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment”  -Beth Moon
