Sometimes we just need to escape our concrete jungles, retreat from the hustle and bustle into nearby woods, or walk barefoot across grass or stare longingly at forest canopies. Not only are trees the elixir of life, responsible for a great deal of our oxygen on this planet. Scientists have also found they have a relaxing effect on us. Bring some mighty oak and revitalising redwood into your home with tree art: the perfect recipe for your own magical forest.

The tree of life
Whether it's the holy Kiso Valley in Japan or the Garden of Eden, trees are a never-ending source of inspiration to us. We never cease to be fascinated by their intrinsic beauty—a fact evident by the impact they’ve had on our rich tapestry of visual symbolism.
In some religions, they represent life and knowledge; elsewhere in culture they stand for man or family. They are also a powerful trope in literature, being able to evoke both a sense of reassurance and terror, love and death, from romantic forests to mysterious woods. Whatever mood you wish to channel, tree prints can certainly set the tone for your interior.
From bonsais to cacti
Trees are impressive: forests cover an astounding four billion hectares of the earth’s surface and the oldest tree is over 5,000 years old. From bonsais that are just a few centimetres high to giant redwoods measuring 85 metres, the diversity of tree species is simply breathtaking.
Bountiful fruit trees, olive groves as far as the eye can see, and luscious palms swaying in the wind are all testament to the grandeur of trees. Transform your home into your own artistic Eden with botanical prints, cactus-filled deserts, fir forests and wondrous woods.
