Welcome to The Treeographer

Welcome to The Treeographer, a collection of the true histories of significant or symbolic trees from around the world. The stories cover a wide variety of topics, including culture, history, science, religion, and more. I hope you’ll join me as I explore the interlacing history of man and tree.

All of the stories to date are organized geographically in the Archive. If you aren’t sure where to start, try Ogawa’s Sacred Cedar – A 780 Million Yen Rescue Mission. You can also see a few of the most recent posts below. You can find out more about me and why I started this project on the about page.

If you just can’t get enough tree stories, check out the recommended reading page for a carefully curated list of the best tree books available! Have an idea for a tree that would make a great article? Send me a message on the contact page and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
