We had just had one of our trees diagnosed with Dutch Elm disease and I found myself viewing it with a new fondness at the thought of its impending absence. For years it had embraced our yard and the loss of that embrace felt surprisingly disturbing. I began to reflect on absence and presence, true of both people and trees. I was well aware that one can feel a person’s presence deeply when they are gone. I also was intrigued with how trees often function in community with each other and other plants and animals. In the overlapping branches, I wanted to show the entanglement of community that is lost.
