Single-use chopsticks account for over a 100 trees in China being chopped down every day, a fact that prompted the China Environmental Protection Foundation to create this powerful art piece out of the remains of over 30,000 chopsticks.

Originally their chopstick tree stood upright, but in order to drive their point home the China Environmental Protection Foundation chopped it down. The resulting monument stands as a profound piece of imagery warning against the rampant deforestation China is pursuing without proper oversight or environmental considerations.
