Google has teamed up with a number of environmental organizations to create Global Forest Watch, an interactive tool that both details the 500 million acres of forest that has been lost since 2000 and sends out alerts whenever further deforestation occurs. Click the link below or visit www.globalforestwatch.org to see more.

Then, learn about arborsculpture, the craft of training trees into useful and artistic shapes as they grow. On the flip side, check out some beautiful sculptures of trees created out of twisted strands aluminum wire.
