Arborglyphs – the deliberate marking of trees, is practiced across many cultures and traditions. People use these marks to commemorate important events and territory, as well as spontaneous emotions scratched onto trees. Often discounted as ‘just graffiti’, arborglyphs work to provide a context for memory, identity and values. They are akin to an archaeology of the tree, explicitly displaying layers of human interaction with nature, through seasons of growth and renewal.
