the leaves breathe

The Leaves Breathe investigates the urban tree and considers a social-ecological perspective* that recognizes complex interactions as a central component for the wellbeing of trees.
This perspective focuses on towns as urban ecosystems and dynamic environments in which the flora and fauna are a direct result of the human influence.
How important to towns and town dwellers is the urban tree?
How important in the town context is the tree linked to our wellbeing?

* social-ecological perspective is a framework to examine the multiple effects and interrelatedness of social elements in an environment. Social ecology is the study of people in an environment and the influences on one another.
