The Sound of Sinister

Ever wondered to which music the Ents would march while destroying our civilizations? Wonder no more.

German artist Bartholomaus Traubeck bastardized a perfectly good record player to the dark art of playing a tree’s growth rings. Chamber music, it is not.

Thanks to BuzzFeed for raising our awareness.

Root them out

Some of our ardent fans ask, “How can I participate in the war against trees? What can I possibly do to root out these deviants from my own neighborhood?”

Ask no more.

Snoop and Cudi spread anti-tree message to the masses

We cannot say enough how excited we at the Anti-Arboreal Association are about the new Snoop Dogg video for his That Tree video featuring Kid CuDi.

The video teems with anti-tree, tree-hating, tree-disrespecting, and tree-felling visuals against an incredibly catchy refrain, and stresses the importance of never forgetting those trees that have wronged you (or the ones you love) in the past.

After you’ve watched it, be sure to let your friends know. This is our chance! Because its hip-hop, it will almost certainly fall under the trees’ radar for the time being… they seem to relate more closely to bluegrass, so use this opportunity to get others hooked on the chorus before they wisen up.

Tag and track the beast

Great news in the War on Tree Terrorism!

Trees Near You” is an iPhone application recently created by Brett Camper for New York City’s BigApps competition.

Apparently, NYC city government has street tree census data publicly available.

According to the app’s site,

Trees Near You helps you learn about more than 500,000 trees that live on New York City sidewalks. For any area of the city, from block to borough, you can see the different species that live there, and measure the environmental (and monetary!) benefits that these trees provide.

Go stalk, tag, and start tracking these barked beasts. And, if your city doesn’t have a street tree census, it might be time to propose just such a thing. Let the trees know that there’s nowhere to hide.

Call ’em as you see ’em

A friend recently tipped us to a bold new campaign in England: call out the enemies in our midst via small but straightforward signage.

Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.
Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.

Take this case as an example. A despicable English tree was cordoned off with traffic cones and metal bars, and given the Scarlet Letter via a sign simply stating: “Dangerous Tree. Please do not enter.”

Can you imagine a simpler yet straight-to-the-point message to give our youth? Bravo to the bold souls in the UK who experimented with so brazen a tactic. Undoubtedly, the sequestered trees have begun to fight back more vehemently than ever… simply because violence is the only language trees know.

Texas Trees on the Ropes

Awesome news from Texas.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Galveston’s tree population is decimated. More than 80% of the town’s trees are dead or dying, for a grand total of 42,800 trees!

Apparently the Galvestinians have already unleashed both hurricanes and killer fungus on the trees, but there are roughly 10,000 fortified trees still hanging on. Give them enough time, and they will sow their dirty seeds around the town, making the job all the harder as the weeks wear on.

Do not forget, though: we are winning this war… stay strong, grab an axe, and help finish the job that these brave Texans have begun. Push, push, PUSH to hit that 100% goal before the end of June!

Help make Texas a tree-free wonderland… a bastion of barkless of beauty to inspire generations to come.
