This work highlights the bitter irony of a society that introduces all sort of gadgets to protect a tree from immediate harm but gives up greater visions like the Kyoto Protocol, spreads questionable myths regarding climate change and behaves increasingly reckless towards the environment.

The tree guard might be more an extension of our control-obsessed society than an expression of genuine and profound care.
