Description
You might expect a photographic album of trees to be a book all in green, but as Tim Palmer proves in 200 gorgeous images here—some larger than 20 x 11 inches—a forest landscape can light up with fiery reds and glowing golds, misty purples and deep, pure blues. Also the author of Rivers of America and the Benjamin Franklin Award winner California Wild, Palmer trekked, skied, and paddled to some of our most remote woodlands to capture New England maples in autumn, aspen groves in the Rockies, cottonwoods by desert streams, the otherworldly bayous of the Carolinas, and the biological extravagance of rainforests in the Northwest.

"Palmer, an award-winning photographer, writer, and conservationist, creates books that combine art and science in the hope of evoking awe, increasing understanding of the life sciences, and stepping up environmental awareness. In this volume, he brings readers deep into the woods, the green cathedrals of nature that sustain life on earth. Palmer traveled all across America to contemplate native trees still standing in and supporting healthy ecosystems, which means he went to state and national parks, wilderness areas and nature reserves, of which he avers we need many more. His knowledge of the inner workings of trees, the planet's most majestic and oldest living organisms, sharpens his eye and underlies the cogent, wide-ranging narration that accompanies his sylvan landscapes and portraits of individual trees, each distinct and vital. As Palmer explains why forests are essential to our survival, he also details all that threatens their viability, concluding, 'Forests are the keepers of soil, water, and climate.... Trees produce the air we breathe.... We need them, and they are beautiful.' Enough said."—Booklist
