Treescape Mural - Fallbrook, CA, USA

Treescape, a mural painted in 1998 by artist Debbie Sievers, is a part of Fallbrook Art in Public Places.  Depicting an oak tree, it was painted to commemorate the Fallbrook Save Our Forest Treescape Project which added over 1000 new trees to Fallbrook in 1998. 

Faded over time from exposure to the elements, the mural is slated to be replaced by a burnished metal sculpture of an oak tree.  Roots, the new sculpture by artist Melissa Ralston, will cover the same wall and will measure 18' by 21'.  A fundraiser is scheduled for March 17, 2012 to generate funds for the project. 
See The Fallbrook Bonsall Village News article, March 1, 2012:

Located at the corner of Hawthorne Street and Main Avenue, on the northeast corner facing Hawthorne Street.
