Arbor Day on iReport: Your favorite trees


In honor of Arbor Day, we invited iReporters to share their favorite tree photos.

This tree's curling trunk and branches against the bright blue sky and green grass at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle, Washington, caught Jim McClure’s eye in early April.

“I love the variety of structure and textures trees provide, especially when back light with sun,” McClure said. “I tried to capture just the right amount of texture on the trees, yet maintain a touch of silhouette.”


In Hershey, Pennsylvania, wedding photographer Ali Waxman captured a row of trees in the early morning fog a month ago.


The sight of this bare tree at a winery in Sonoma, California, reminded Ruth Rutherford of hope.

“It's barren, but it will soon be in full bloom, just like the rows of grape vines in the background. Today might not be the best day, but tomorrow will be better,” said Rutherford, who lives in Washington, D.C. and shot the photo with her iPhone in early March.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this assignment, and have a look at the rest of the Arbor Day submissions here.

Cool beans! Thanks for the feature! Love the other photos, too. Ali's morning foggy view is ghostly... Love it.
