Tree Nurseries – Cultivating the Urban Jungle

Book project: Reports on plant production

Based on reports, the background and sphere of influence of tree nurseries will be told and depicted. The relationship between people and environment will be examined from the perspective of plant production. In the foreground is the story of the various continents, from prehistory to today’s mega-metropolises. The production desire and the capability to transform things characterise human existence and their environment. Each story is divided into text generated from essays and travel reports and a sequence of photos that were taken now on site to form a relationship to the present.
