Tree Farm, Early Spring

On our way home from the Palouse we happened to drive past this large field of Poplars planted in tight rows.  The young leaves were glowing in the afternoon sun, in just the shade of spring green that I'd been admiring all month.  I was pretty curious about these rows of trees so we got off the highway to check them out.  Turns out it's a sustainable tree farm growing high-yield, quick-growth trees for lumber and paper, creating biomass for energy production, and somehow treating wastewater through its irrigation process.  The farm is called GreenWood Resources in Boardman, Oregon.

Melissa, this goes beyond photography. It's truly a piece of art. You should put this on canvas and hang it in your home. Or sell it online. Wow!
