Welcome to those who have joined recently - the group is steadily growing and has passed 10,000 members! It is now autumn in the southern hemisphere and spring in the north - show us some great seasonal trees!
Group DescriptionFor photos of trees - whole trees, closeups, forests. Any kind of tree. Identification preferred if you can find out, and also information about where the photo was taken. Hopefully we can learn from each other.
Unfortunately, I have had to delete few off-topic submissions lately, which really shouldn't be necessary. This group has a simple title "Tree Photos" which basically describes its one and only rule - we only want photos of trees. So to decide whether your photo fits the group, you need to ask yourself two questions:
1. Is there a tree in this photo? If not, the photo does not belong here.
2. Is the tree or trees the main point of the photo and not just incidental or in the background? If yes, then your photo is welcome!
COMMENTING is encouraged but not obligatory.
I want this to be a friendly and inclusive group for people who are interested in both trees and photography.
Photos that do not contain a tree, trees or tree parts as their main focus will be removed. People in the photos (especially for scale) are fine.
