FISH NEED TREES TOO, 36x48 inches, 2014

Wild Alaskan Salmon need old growth western hemlock and Sitka spruce that grow along the banks of the rivers. This is where the fish spawn: the trees and falling leaves provide food for aquatic insects that young salmon eat; tree roots slow bank erosion, provide shelter for young fish, and protect clean water. So next time you enjoy a great wild salmon dinner, thank a tree!
