The TreeSpirit Book
I’m Jack Gescheidt, founder of The TreeSpirit Project. I’ve been a professional photographer for 25 years, and tree and nature lover since I was a little kid growing up shuttling between New York City and upstate New York. TreeSpirit began in 2005, when I was inspired by a giant live oak tree I call “Grandmother,” in Marin County, CA, that moved me to tears at a painful turning point in my life.
A mission to raise awareness of the critical role trees play in our lives, both globally and personally. The incredible, unexpected experiences people have while making the photographs. The collection of fine art photographs by Jack Gescheidt   They celebrating human interdependence with trees, and all of nature.  The people in the photographs are all volunteers who love trees, too, not paid models who bare themselves to boldly, playfully, reconnect to trees, to other people, to themselves.
Time is running out to save the world's forests. We must stop cutting down trees, and plant more of them in order to slow human-caused climate change. Your donation funds the TreeSpirit Project photo book to advance TreeSpirit’s mission, using activism, art & advocacy to protect, promote and revere trees and forests. After 12 years of environmental activist photographs, we're raising funds to publish a big coffee table book.  Over 120 photographs, made over 12 years, show over 1,000 people daring to be naked and vulnerable — dramatizing the vulnerability of trees themselves.

THE BOOK'S TEXT will include TreeSpirit’s environmentalist mission.  And stories behind the activist photos.  (Watch the reality TV show teaser trailer VIDEO at the top of this page.)  Also included: the powerful, unexpected experiences people have during the photos.  Many men and women braved being naked in public for the first time, to save trees, or just for the thrill of it.

THE BOOK'S PURPOSE: to touch people's hearts, inspire their imagination, and stir their senses with a lush, image-driven celebration of the inspiring beauty of trees and forests.  We  need trees now more than ever. Science, reason and rational argument all show we must end deforestation and plant more trees.  But people must also care for trees again on a gut, emotional level.  What we love we will protect.

NO TREES KILLED to make this book! 100% PCW (Post- Consumer Waste) RECYCLED PAPER will be used to make it.  Because fewer people use it, it costs more, but it is our only environmentally logical future.  As technologies improve, and more people demand it, trees don’t have to die to become paper.  Read the story below of how paper was partly responsible for this crowd-sourced self-publishing campaign you are a part of. UPON FUNDING, our initial ideas go to a professional book/graphic designer. Each page becomes a stand-alone work of art. PRINTING is next, with 100% PCW (post-consumer waste) paper and a printer who has worked with our recycled paper before. We've budgeted extra time for inevitable real-world delays, mishaps, adjustments, etc. Finally, comes FULFILLMENT — sending your book to you. With tree-loving campaign contributors from around the world, including many who are in the photographs, we have again allowed extra time for international delivery. If we fund quickly, we will get you your TreeSpirit books in time to be perfect end-of-year holiday gifts. Thanks, everyone, for making “We Are Trees” here, and helping more people reconnect with trees everywhere. Questions & Answers: Q. Can I donate anonymously, and NOT have my name printed in the book? A. YES. After funding, we will thank ALL donors who made this project possible by email, we will ask if anyone would prefer NOT have their name printed in the book.
