Our planet is losing a fundamental necessity for life – trees – through deforestation. Over half of our earth’s mature tropical forests have been destroyed in the last 60 years. Ghost Trees depicts the ghosts of those trees wandering the vast areas where they once stood, lamenting the demise of our planet if this trend is not reversed.
