Artist's Description

This huge dying teak tree, killed by greedy humans, epitomises what we are doing to our planet. This shot was taken in April 2009 in the mountains of northern Thailand where teak forests once flourished. Scores of similar giants, 2-300 years old, standing near this tree had also been illegally ringbarked in the Lum Nam Pai Wildlife Sanctuary where Dave (in photo) and I were walking. Local villagers will fell the trees when the wood is dry and handsaw it to produce planks for sale.
