Like its namesake, the story takes its time to grow, roots connecting with other character acts and developments, on the way to a singular connective endpoint. In short: Trees is series of microcosms based around a character reacting to the wake of gigantic tree-esque organisms that have infested the earth. Governments collapsed, new ones took form, cities were largely destroyed or became husks. There is no counting to what happened to every tree-site yet, but so far the negatives outweigh the positives for humanity.
The world has been taken over by monolithic tree-like structures that in their wake have destroyed large sections of the earth simply by impact or by their “natural” corrosive emissions. Civilisation within that destruction has become a diversified and more liberal state, human beings living on the fringes of sexuality, society, sanity and life itself.
