Description
Have you ever looked closely at the delicate flowers of a red maple? The emerging leaves of a tulip poplar? The twigs of a beech? When you look at trees up close, says garden columnist Nancy Ross Hugo, you begin to appreciate them in a whole new way. Focusing on 10 common trees of North America—American Beech, Ginkgo, Red Maple, Southern Magnolia, Tulip Poplar, White Oak, White Pine, American Sycamore, Black Walnut, and Eastern Red Cedar—Hugo highlights the rewards of tree viewing and eloquently describes some of each tree's most intriguing features. Photographer Robert Llewellyn illuminates her text with his remarkable composite closeups, creating sharply focused images by stitching together numerous photos shot at a different focal points.

"Hugo writes with real passion about trees, describing their qualities, flowers, fruits, barks, and unique characteristics, and including her own observations and experiments with cuttings and seedlings. She is articulate and enthusiastic, making this an ideal volume for beginning observers of trees."—Book News

"Through [Llewellyn's] lens we take flight with a red maple's charming helicopterlike seed pods and can almost feel the smooth, muscular, steel-gray bark of an ironwood."—Houston Chronicle
