Although it’s still an ongoing series, it has been a while since I last sketched a tree that has been cut away to accommodate utility lines. My reportage of trees in trouble has reminded me of the sacrifices of trees even when they aren’t in trouble.

This poplar near Green Lake is so tall that I did something I rarely do: I opened my sketchbook to use the full spread, and I also turned it diagonally to emphasize the vertical composition. Of course, now it’s crooked on my blog, so I’m showing the photo I snapped on the street, too.
