[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Oak trees provided food to the local Chumash Indian population for centuries, with their acorns. It is against the law to remove one, but they simply disappear to fit in more houses, more stores, more of everything. Cutting down trees with glee seems to be a California, if not national past time. The gnarled old trees have out lived drought, war, fire; but not man. All the bottom branches were constantly cut off the one I had in my last house, by the city. The entire street resembled tree pom poms! The grace and beauty of trees like this was stripped, to become stumps with many tiny branches.
