Festival of the Trees #10 and Call for Submissions for FotT #11: Trees in the Concrete

[Updated 2007.04.05: Corrected submission deadline.]

Festival of the Trees #10 is up on Roger Butterfield's blog, Words and Pictures. Roger is one of my favorite nature photographers on the Web. He's in Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England, UK and shares his love and intimate knowledge of his favorite places there.

And I will be hosting Festival of the Trees #11 here at Flatbush Gardener! The photo above symbolizes the theme for this edition:

We are interested in trees in the concrete rather than in the abstract, so while stories about a particular forest would be welcome, newsy pieces about forest issues probably wouldn’t be.
- FotT Submission Guidelines
Yes, I am also interested in trees in the concrete, like the one above. Urban trees and forestry. Street trees, park trees, weed trees. So, for the next Festival of the Trees, I'm especially looking for submissions on this theme. This is not a restrictive theme, so anything which fits the FotT submission guidelines is welcome. If you have a doubt, send it. You can submit entries via the Festival of the Trees Submission Form on BlogCarnival. You can also send an email to festival (dot) trees (at) gmail (dot) com with "Festival of the Trees" in the subject.

The publication date will be May 1st, 2007. The deadline for submissions is April 29. It's my first time hosting a Blog Carnival, so be gentle.

PS: The tree above lives - nay, survives - on Westminster Road, around the corner from my home. I don't know what kind of tree it is, yet.

I hope you mean the deadline is April 29 instead of March 29... right?
