When a text becomes a tree.

Write down your thoughts and watch a tree grow. Whether it's a quote from your grandmother or your own special birthday wishes to a friend. For every piece of text, we can generate a unique digital tree. Because trees represent all aspects of life. They stand for growth, decay and regeneration. They are beautiful creatures, older than language and human life. Texttotree uses the powerful symbol of a tree to bring the rooting potential of nature into the digital sphere. Grow yourself a forest of trees by submitting your daily expressions.
