the ancients

tail

are on fire

Trees are the planet’s oldest living creatures. Their beauty inspires us and their presence sustains our wellbeing. A world without them cannot survive. Climate change is killing them. The BARKED project protects their legacy. Join in our efforts, donate, or get some printed objects. Together we will save these ancient treasures.

BARKED founder Robert Ouellette travels the globe documenting ancient trees. Their bark embeds the complex history of thousands of years of growth. The barked images are time machines to a past world, one that existed before massive environmental change.

Join in our mission. You will make a difference.
