All the Trees encouraged visitors to take a closer look at the trees around the West Point Grey Community Centre and Jericho Park and to communicate with those trees. This was commemorated with a series of 24 posters showcasing some of the emails and responses that were sent. Thirty trees were tagged with an ID Number, an email address and an invitation to send a personal message to the tree. Artist in residence, Holly Schmidt and a curated group including historian John Atkin, horticulturalist Egan Davis, poet Rahat Kurd, and indigenous herbalist Lori Snyder responded to the emails on behalf of the trees. All the Trees is an artist project by Holly Schmidt, Vancouver Park Board Artist in Community at West Point Grey Community Centre.
All the Trees was made possible with the support of the Artist in Communities program through the Vancouver Park Board and West Point Grey Community Centre, and the Jericho Stewardship Group. This legacy poster project and exhibition are supported by the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre.
