Arborregions by Radical Cartography

Bioregionalism is an attempt to align personal identity with natural regions rather than arbitrary political boundaries. But most bioregionalist mapping still relies on the familiar conventions of hard-edged shapes—mostly watersheds. This series of maps instead defines a new, blurrier kind of bioregion using gradients of similarity for major tree species. Starting with the forests I know from my own life, I can see how other forests compare. Additional personal maps can be made for any point.
