First call for February’s Festival of the Trees

Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please. It’s my pleasure to announce that treeblog will be hosting the 44th Festival of the Trees next month, so here’s what you gotta do. You’ve got the rest of the month to send all your tree-related submissions to me over at treeblog HQ, where a crack team of forest sprites are standing by to craft something worthy. What can you submit? Hear it straight from the horse’s mouth:

    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
  • bark rubbings

    If you’re uncertain about whether a given item qualifies for inclusion, go ahead and send it in anyway.

Email your submissions to mail [at] treeblog [dot] co [dot] uk, ensuring that you include Festival of the Trees or FOTT in the title line. Or you could use the festival contact form. The deadline for submissions is the 30th of January and the festival will go online on the 1st of February.

Bring it on!
