Festival of the Trees 52 will be hosted by John of the Kind of Curious blog. Issue 52 is open to all tree-and-forest-related submissions, so let your creativity (and your curiosity) be your trail guide.

If you need some ideas, why not try a little local discovery? Is there an arboretum, park, or preserve in your neighborhood which you habitually drive past and never stop to investigate? If so, take this call for submissions as your invitation to explore.

Want to trek a bit further? How about a visit to a farm in your region, or a hydroelectric dam? Tell us what trees are growing alongside fields and riparian zones where you live. And remember: you need not travel far for discovery! Challenge yourself to a daily visit with a tree near your home, school, or workplace, and share what is revealed.

Festival of the Trees Interview at The Nature Blog Network

Join us at The Nature Blog Network for an interview discussing The Festival of the Trees blog carnival with Pablo, Dave Bonta, and Jade Blackwater, illustrated with tree photos by Jade and Dave. Learn about how The Festival of the Trees got its start, and how you can participate in future issues.

Many thanks to our interviewer Wren and the rest of the team at The Nature Blog Network for inviting us to share our passion, and for helping to share the community of nature bloggers with the world wide web.

Ready to volunteer?  Contact us to be a host for a future Festival, or submit a link for the upcoming issue hosted at treeblog. The deadline is January 30th — just six days away.

The February Festival #44 takes us back once again to the forests of the treeblog.  We last celebrated the Festival of the Trees at the treeblog with #32 in February 2009.  This year our host Ash welcomes tree-related submissions of all persuasions, so don’t hold back – get out into the woods, wander your backyards, or take a moment to talk to the tree outside your office building.  Then share your discoveries with us online and send our host the link.

Submit tree-related blog posts, podcasts, photos, videos, and other arboreal creations via email to mail[at]treeblog[dot]co[dot]uk, or use our handy contact form.  Remember to put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email.  Submission deadline for Festival #44 is January 30th.

Have you ever looked at this map which estimates the Global Distribution of Original and Remaining Forests on our planet Earth?  Combine that with a SWAG ball park figure from ClickZ marketing which estimates upwards of 250 million advanced internet users for 2010, and what do you get?  A whole lotta tree bloggin’, that’s what!!

So remember – the trees you share need not be your own! We encourage you to wander the world forests via the world wide web, and send us postcards (blog links) along the way.

Meet you at the treeblog!
