The nylon fishing net entwined around the branches highlights the threat to marine biology in all the world’s oceas from discarded plastic waste.

UPDATE 2018/19

Welsh artist Robert Davies receives planning permission after appeal, to erect a permanent tree sculpture cast of a Ceredigigion oak on the Welsh coast shoreline between Borth and Yngs Las, to draw attention to the ancient forest that once grew there but which is now mostly submerged, as well as make a point on rising sea levels due to climate change.

As a contemporary artist living in the area I would like to site a single Ceredigion oak tree in the inter-tidal zone on the beach adjacent to, but not within, the ancient forest. Working with other artists, archaeologists, engineers, fundraisers, manufacturers and the local authorities I’m hoping to get permission to make a metal cast of a single tree
