  Prince Georges County, MD     
  
   
  
  

 The
cities of Baltimore and Washington, DC lie in one of the most congested regions
of the United States. Development during the past ten to twenty years has been
rampant and large sections of forest have been cleared to make way for new
housing developments and shopping centers. Despite the loss of so much of the
natural environment, I have enjoyed completing over five thousand hikes
throughout this region, almost entirely across pockets of rural farmland and
forest, much of it now gone. 

 This
series begins with trees that are in their prime, specimens that stand
gloriously apart from the crowd. Gradually, these give way to trees that are
slightly bent or misshapen, then on to broken trees, knocked down trees, root
balls and, finally, rotting hulks. This alignment was my way of creating a
metaphor for the natural progression of life at its grandest to the eventual
deterioration and end that awaits every living thing.
