On the left side there are those two trees where the brown one overlaps the other one. I find that the white of the back tree is pushing forward too much. To the right of centre are two trees who seem to both be leaning at exactly the same angle. Seems a bit "unnatural". The two small branches in the middle are very interesting in that they sort of prevent the viewer from totally walking into the painting. They stop the painting from being an arrow right into the forest(the large triangle formed on the ground).

a nice composition of
interestingly angled verticals
and horizontals
with dark and light worked with these shapes
not a simple structure

I like the connection which zigzags edge to edge.
