I may have returned to Oregon for the trees. Of course there are trees in Alaska, mainly black spruce, aspen and willow, where I lived. And there were the mesquite and palo verde in Arizona. But I missed the madrona, the big Douglas firs, the cedar, nodding hemlock, great white oaks, giant Sitka spruce warm ponderosa pine, juniper and the scattered yews.
So getting closer to the trees was part of the return to Oregon, where I was born. With some other people we purchased a few acres full of trees. Now I can watch them grow, add to them, even subtract some from time to time. The last few years I have been measuring them and photographing them as individuals.
