Trees are as important as water for the humankind. Humans cannot even imagine life without trees. But it is really unfortunate that some very beautiful species of trees have either extinct or are about to extinct. One of the rare species of such trees is the birch trees. Now you can only see them in museums or zoos and the credit goes to the British artist Anthony James who did a fabulous job by preserving such beautiful trees. The beauty of birch trees that are locked up in glass boxes in museums and zoos would mesmerize you for sure. The only remnants of nature preserved in glass boxes in museums and zoos glow under fluorescent lights. The tree has beautiful thin white branches that look awesome in that glowing light in the glass boxes. These preserved species present an image of idealized destruction and sends an environmental message.
