There is hope in this climate of change, and Foresta, the subject of this print, is proof! Having seen 3 major fires in the past few decades, it is a veritable wonderland for a fire ecologist! The Native American practice of prescribed burning shaped California natural history for thousands of years. Done away with 150 years ago, we now realize its importance in the natural processes of our unique Ultra-Mediterranean ecosystem, while providing for both the food abundance and safety of its inhabitants.

This piece was carved while hearing news of more than a half dozen fires in California. Lately, I’ve been reading about the surprising benefits that fire brings; even an extreme event can rejuvenate a forest and actually increase biodiversity. I just have to close my eyes and remember how surreally beautiful and headily aromatic the lupine, rabbitbrush, mountain lilac and poppies were this Spring, especially in areas that saw fire. The stark, twisted and fantastic shapes of the upright trucks, standing black against a green and flowering sea of returning life. It is also a strangely beautiful place, as I hope you can agree.

This is No. 10 in a planned edition of 12 prints in 12 months honoring Yosemite's 125th Birthday and a 'Big One' for me - We are both celebrating for the entire year! You can find the 9th print in the series here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/419115879/dogwoods-yosemite-flowering-tree-fine
