WELCOME TO ILOVETREES.NET

ILoveTrees.Net was created to showcase natural places with an emphasis on large trees and old forests.


I have visited some of the biggest and oldest trees on the planet. I’ve walked through the most intensely beautiful forests anyone can imagine. I spend most of my time in the woods, as an explorer of nature, especially native trees and old-growth. I write. I photograph. I paint. I lament the lack of mindful connection with our world.

While living in Wilmington, North Carolina for several years I profiled many of the limited natural spaces in the area. I recently relocated to California to spend more time exploring giant sequoia groves.
