It’s not easy being a tree…

Update, 21 Feb: here’s Classic Copenhagen on why Cph is not that green. Red Byens Træer has a great post on how to take things forward – I’ll need to start investigating the lie of the land in Hvidovre….see also #trees on my Adrift tumblr and More than human’s trees category.

We see a fair amount of urban nature on our walks. Winter can be hard though, and drags on. These photographs were taken this week, with leaden grey skies if slightly warmer temperatures than the last two weeks. We’ll check back on these trees later in the year – maybe I’m being a bit glass half empty.

Extreme pollarding…or encouraging growth?
