Pine and cypress—those two trees could certainly form the underpinnings of an exploration of our region. From logging to coastal protection to home construction techniques, America's trees are an integral part of the nation's story. When our trees become threatened by extinction, more is at stake than just a home for birds and squirrels. Curated by American Photo magazine and produced by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, Every Tree Tells a Story is an exhibition at Longue Vue House and Gardens that highlights significant and threatened trees in the United States that reveal our cultural and natural heritage. 7 Bamboo Road.
