About This Site

Do you ever wonder how to tell the trees apart in your local forests? Would you like to know more about the function and origins of the characteristics that define each tree species?

Celebrate and learn about trees with naturalist Michael Wojtech, and become better connected with the landscape where you live. Michael writes about, conducts workshops on, illustrates, and photographs the identifying characteristics, physiology, and ecology of trees. He strives to share the process of discovery—the keen observation, finding nuance and beauty in infinite layers, the evocation of multiple senses—and inspire the creative expressions and connections that flow from these experiences.
