Love letters to trees

“As I was leaving St. Mary’s College today I was struck, not by a branch, but by your radiant beauty. You must get these messages all the time. You’re such an attractive tree.”When You Give a Tree an Email Address

It seems like we’re drowned with reports on how digital technology is making us less empathetic, more stressed and more filled with hate. This article comes as a breath of fresh air in that sense. The city of Melbourne assigned each tree a unique email address so it’s citizens could report problems. Instead, people used the email addresses to send love letters to their favorite trees. ❤️ conquers all.

Newsletter

I write a newsletter every two-four weeks. I'll let you decide if it’s any good but people seem to stay on.

*In fact, thousands of smart people incl designers from Amazon, IDEO, Figma and Shopify

I’m on Twitter and Linkedin if you want to follow along. You can also e-mail me.
