Seeing Trees

Seeing Trees by Nancy Ross Hugo with photography by Robert Llewellyn will be available in a few weeks, and I’m excited to share some photos from the book with you! These are just a sampling of the striking images that are found within Seeing Trees.

In Seeing Trees, author Nancy Ross Hugo teaches us a whole new way of watching a tree. And in breathtaking shots of striking detail, photographer Robert Llewellyn shows us why it’s worth it.

On every page we see the miracle of seeds maturing, leaves unfurling, and flowers emerging. But moreover, this book teaches us what to look for when we slow down and take the time — what we can see in the scars of a leaf, the twig structure, and the pattern of the bark. Seeing Trees opens our eyes to a tree’s shy magnificence, and invites us to deepen our relationship with these earthly treasures.

This books looks great! I’ve often remarked there should be books available that show the minute details of trees, including photos of the flowers, bark, leaves and such. I am glad to see someone has done something similar! I’d love to review this book on my gardening blog!!
