    Default bound by trees

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "bound" means in the following sentence:

    I was attempting to take a photograph of an area bound by trees, about fifty yards in front of me in my driveway.

    Does "bound by trees" mean "surrounded by trees"?

    Yes it does. The trees form a boundary around the area.
    "Bound" is also the past participle of "bind", but generally, trees don't bind things.
