This work reflects my exploration of the seed bank and the photo ark in my final year project. From the notion of the seed bank, I came to learn about the work of Trees For Life, a charity who aim to restore the Caledonian forest in Scotland of which less than 1% remains. Along with hundreds of volunteers, the charity painstakingly grows thousands of native tree saplings from seed and disperses them within the remaining remnants of the ancient forests across the Highlands of Scotland. Without the help of strategically placed fencing, these saplings would fail to grow taller than those depicted due to the over-grazing of an ever increasing deer population.
