This image is part of a series on disappearing green life. “Bald Cedar” captures a branch and seeds from a tree in the East River Park that is soon to be destroyed. All of the park’s trees will be taken out during the East Side Coastal Resiliency project. The image is a way of capturing the fragile beauty of this tree and recognizing the three individual cedars that are losing their lives to climate change in Manhattan. Sadly, the tree also houses a Red-tailed hawk’s nest. I recognize that nature needs advocates.
