Arboreality – Tree Blogging: Nature Blog

A peaceful online forest

Since 2005 Jade has published Arboreality – Tree Blogging to promote appreciation for trees and forests in one verdant online refuge. Arboreality features photos of trees and forests from Jade’s homes in Western Washington, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Southern California. She combines carefully selected images with prose and poetry to highlight easily overlooked details such as late winter growth, companion plants, and the intersections of wildlife and urban life.
