Images and stories have the power to change the world. 

And we’re using that power to inspire people to take action to protect the trees in our environment.

One image, one story, and one exhibition at a time.  

Trees hold deep cultural, environmental, functional and emotional significance. They are also essential to our physical and mental wellbeing. Trees in Ottawa, and elsewhere, are under threat: from invasive species, deforestation, urban intensification and other hazards.   

By presenting the perspectives of diverse 'tree enthusiasts' in our community, we hope to build tree awareness and appreciation.  

This initiative is made possible by the dedication of many people who are passionate about trees.
