Landmark Spruce

Here in St. Paul we have a Landmark tree program where trees can be designated as landmarks. This tree is in Como Park. This year I was asked to photograph the trees for the City of St. Paul. It was a challenge that I truly enjoyed. I know the city and can usually identify most species of Minnesota trees and I have a camera so the job was fairly easy except for the tree shooting part. The trees were huge and we can’t control the weather or move the tree so that we don’t have to shoot into the sun. Some of the trees had so many trees near them that it was hard to make the tree the focal point in the photo. I had a lot of fun with the project and made a tree gallery for the city. It gave me an appreciation for trees and now I see them everywhere. 🙂
