Festival of the Trees

Festival of the Trees #30 is up at A Neotropical Savanna.  There’s some great stuff there, including some great photography.

The Festival of the Trees blog carnival has acught my eye a couple times, but I have never clicked through and taken a good look at it.  Much to my loss.  It looks like the kind of thing that should really appeal to me – a mixture of tree biology and simple tree appreciation.  On their “About” page they write

For the purposes of the Festival, we’re defining trees as any woody plants that regularly exceed three meters in height, though exceptions might be made to accommodate things like banana “trees” or bonsai. We are interested in trees in the concrete rather than in the abstract, so while stories about a particular forest would be welcome, newsy pieces about forest issues probably wouldn’t be. The emphasis should be on original content; we don’t want to link to pieces that are 90% or more recycled from other authors or artists.

The Festival of the Trees seeks:

  • original photos or artwork featuring trees
  • original essays, stories or poems about trees
  • audio and video of trees
  • news items about trees (especially the interesting and the off-beat)
  • philosophical and religious perspectives on trees and forests
  • scientific and conservation-minded perspectives on trees and forests
  • kids’ drawings of trees
  • dreams about trees
  • trees’ dreams about us
  • people who hug trees
  • people who make things out of trees
  • big trees
  • small trees
  • weird or unusual trees
  • sexy trees
  • tree houses
  • animals that live in, pollinate, or otherwise depend on trees
  • lichens, fungi or bacteria that parasitize or live in mutualistic relationships with trees

They also offer some pretty cool promotional badges…which I just couldn’t refuse.  Hopefully that will remind me to send them a submission next time.
