Learn the Story of Tree Ring

1957 Tree Shirt

Regular price $25.00 Sale

We found a tree that was established in 1957, and created this stunning image of its annual rings.  Each of the 60 annual rings represents one year of the tree's life.  In the words of Herman Hesse "one can read its whole history in the luminous inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured."

This tree was harvested from a mountain forest in western Montana as part of our efforts to restore a stand of old growth trees.  Learn more about our forest restoration projects.
