The last Friday of April is set aside annually in celebration of National Arbor Day, a holiday which encourages the planting and caring for of trees and other foliage. According to our good friend, Wikipedia, it originated in Nebraska during the early 1870's and has since spread to a global level.
What better way to celebrate the greenest of holidays with a vertically integrated product: trees make paper, photographs are printed on paper, photographs on paper look FABULOUS on your walls! See the logic there?
So in honor of the 140th Arbor Day here is a small forests' worth of the photography world's best trees!
