Yesterday saw the start of National Tree Week 2012 which will run until 2nd December. First mounted in 1975, National Tree Week is the UK’s largest tree celebration, annually launching the start of the winter tree-planting season. National Tree Week is a chance for communities to do something positive for their local treescape. Each year, Tree Council member organisations, such as voluntary bodies and local authorities, up to 200 schools and community groups, 8,000 Tree Wardens and many others, support the initiative by setting up fun, worthwhile and accessible events, inspiring upward of a quarter of a million people to get their hands dirty and together plant around million trees.


To support the initiative here are some of my more unusual tree images. Even though the first one may be somewhat misshaped it at least stood the test of time in a very exposed location and was captured at Haytor on my trip to Dartmoor in the Spring of last year.

The second tree which has also survived in a very exposed location is on the northeast coast of the Isle of Arran near Laggan Cottage.

The final tree whilst being somewhat younger and less exposed was captured just a few months ago on my trip to the North York Moors National Park on Bridestones Moor.

Although not included in this offer why not see how many single trees you can find in other locations in the Galleries and Print Shop where you can purchase your own prints, canvases and other forms of wall art as well as stock image downloads for commercial and personal use.
