Description

In Pine Cut and Marked, Apalachicola National Forest, Mark Klett does not turn away from the glaring indicia of human activity in the natural landscape. A forest manager might mark a tree to signal that it is to be cut or to be left based upon its growth potential, ability to provide seed, or wildlife benefits. The codes are not universal, so we do not know the fate of this tree, only that it was identified with a mark, evidence of its significance in our plan for this forest.
