The making of Seeing Trees

by Timber Press on September 28, 2013

in Gardening

For many, the tree is a symbol of longevity, integrity, and enduring beauty. But how many of us have truly seen a tree? How well do we know the intimate details and secrets of that old familiar oak in the backyard? 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. In this video, Nancy shares her inspiration for the book and Robert explains the technique used to capture high-resolution images of tiny details.

My favorite new book this season…made for us nearsighted gardeners, who long ago learned the thrill of peering at plants. —Dominique Browning
