Description

Forests are a natural resource that can offer spiritual refreshment and recreational possibilities, but trees are also a managed crop, planted and harvested on a long-range schedule. The ugliness of the scarred, clearcut landscape is assuaged somewhat by the title Lucas Foglia gave this work, which helps remind us of that growth cycle.
