Arbor Abattoire...

This image is unexpectedly startling to me. The living aspect of trees has always been clear to me, but somehow the extraction of wood boards from tree trunks never struck me as an act of butchery. I'm not getting soft here (am I?). I love a wooden table. I'm sitting at one now. It's just that I am extremely interested in any situation where man terminates a life, any living thing, to sustain his own, especially if it's done discretely as a service to our death denying masses.
