“Standing in front of one of these Champion Trees is incredible. Maybe it’s the tree’s age, dignity, strength, its grace — I don’t know. But the next best thing for people who won’t have a chance to meet that tree in person – is to see a photograph that tries to captures its power. That’s my journey – for the next few years. Bringing those images back to everyone who wishes they could be there for themselves.” — Brian Kelley, American Forests’ Archivist
