It’s the world’s largest collection of naked tree activists photos, by environmental artist Jack Gescheidt, dramatizing human interdependence with trees — forests mitigate human-caused climate change, and deforestation contributes to it.

This one-of-a-kind environmental activist photo book is crowdfunding on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/treespiritproject/treespirit-project-coffee-table-book?ref=e74eiv
