Seeing trees and green areas in urban settings, apart from the city park is getting to be a rare sight. You can hope to see a stray tree here or there or a few lowers breaking through the cracks on the side of the pavement, but that is probably just about it.
Preserving the urban greenery is more important than we care to admit or realize. Unfortunately we tend to sacrifice every inch of free space in our cities to increase our own comfort.
Eco-activists try to raise awareness by doing campaigns, protest and other activities, but sometimes realizing something is precious can come from unexpected places. Like street artists.
Across the world street artists have incorporated bits of existing nature in their art, making a wonderful blend that is hard to ignore.
After seeing these works of nature and art, you might think twice about cutting that tree to make room for your car.
