About this book

Everyone knows what a tree looks like, but have you ever really seen the delicate flowers of a red maple? The emerging leaves of a tulip poplar? The twigs of a beech? When you look at a tree up close, a whole new world of form and detail emerges-you encounter beauty that you never knew existed, and you begin to appreciate trees in a whole new way.

Filled with arresting close-ups.--Mary Beth Breckenridge "Akron Beacon Journal "
