Copper Canyon Little Trees Failed to Save These Cars From the Crusher09/23/2021
Vehicles that haven’t many miles remaining before they get forcibly retired often need a bit of olfactory assistance, and so many of the cars I photograph in their final parking spots sport examples the iconic Car-Freshner Little Tree air fresheners inside. We saw a handful of the short-lived Bold Embrace-scented trees— sold in the mid-2010s— in such cars last winter, and now I’m sharing my photos of junkyard inhabitants with Copper Canyon trees. These trees were available from about 2017 through 2019, and I’ve managed to document them in the wrecking yards of four states: Arizona, California, Colorado, and North Carolina.
