Picturesque Forest Project

Bob and his wife Jen, began the Picturesque Forest Project as a very personal project. Images purchased from the RHIZOME IMAGES collection, help donate trees to reforest wildfire devastated areas through American Forests. Building the Picturesque Forest Project is an easy way for creatives and art buyers to give something back without the hassle of a promotion or a sale. It is a simple action that takes no extra time yet ends with a big payoff.

Purchases from the collection or custom photoshoots continue to donate trees to various ReLeaf programs.  Recently, the Picturesque Forest Project donated 30 Trees on behalf of a Canadian client to the B.C. Wildfire ReLeaf Fund through Tree Canada. In the U.S., over 345 trees were donated to the California Wildfire ReLeaf program, with 22 trees going to the Katrina ReLeaf Fund. Through custom photoshoots with one client, we have been able to donate 460 trees to date to a Global Releaf Fund all through

How it works:
Mae West once said, “Five will get you ten if you know how to work it.” We say, for every one image licensed through Rhizome Images, we can donate up to ten trees to one of the American Forests ReLeaf funds, the nation’s oldest nonprofit citizens’ conservation organization. Here’s how your purchases work:
