The primary use of tree branch art in photography is emotive. They can either frame a scene or enhance a certain mood that the photographer is trying to establish. These emotive tree photographs are one of the most recognizable examples of tree branch art for art audiences today.
As a category of modern natural art, few are as unique or diverse as tree branch art. However, in many ways contemporary tree prints deal more with the symbolic relevance of branches. For example, in the tree branch print 'Love of Two Hearts' the tree branches symbolize the growth of family rather than depicting any particular characteristic of the branches themselves.
