select the white area and delete it, leaving the area transparent. then
composite it over whatever you want. another way is use layer masks.

there probably is.

that's another way.

it's the same technique as compositing a person onto a different
background, except much easier since the edges are well defined b/w
lines. it's *very* easy to select the 'background' area.
people and trees don't have straight b/w edges and getting the masking
right can be tricky, although it's much easier now than before since
the apps can figure out the edges for you, rather than do it the hard
way (although some people will still do it the hard way).
