Summary
  • Built on a treeless yard by a family who cleared away all the sprouting trees on the property, a house is eventually abandoned and left to deteriorate on a lot that is gradually overrun by wild trees, in a poignant tale of loss, change, and nature's quiet triumph
  • No trees were on the lot where the new house sat, and the children in the house followed the scent of wild trees to neighboring lots. As the children grew up, their father continued to fight against blowing seeds until he moved away
