Trees are vitalwithout them we simply wouldn't be here. Not only essential, they have been an inspiration throughout our history. In breathtaking photographs and stories we are taken on a journey from the boreal forest at the edge of the Arctic to the rainforests girdling the planet; from ancient bristlecones to fresh-leaved seedlings; from the charming and familiar to the scary and rare. An elegantly written and highly accessible text is complemented by an extraordinary collection of images created by some of the world's leading nature photographers.

About the Author:

Lewis Blackwell founded Creative Review magazine and was world head of creative development at Getty Images for 10 years. He lives in London and Italy.

From Booklist:

Photographer Blackwell draws on his experience as head of creative development at Getty Images to inspire an international troupe of stellar nature photographers to portray with exquisite artistry trees and forests. The result is a gorgeous, generously proportioned showcase dedicated to celebrating the planet’s longest living entities, “the ultimate survivalists,” and advocating for worldwide protection of trees and forests. Blackwell covers a remarkable amount of information about the lives of trees and their phenomenal contribution to human life in his quote-laced commentary, succinctly concluding, “Without them, there is no us.” While Blackwell analyzes the threats facing forests, and assures readers that every tree planted is a bid for life, the book’s dramatic and surprising photographs dazzle with the astonishing ingenuity, diversity, and beauty, both majestic and intimate, of trees—from close-ups of veined leaves, sculptural roots, and tapestried bark to panoramas of forest cathedrals, trees standing in a froth of bluebells, and trees with limbs raised like sylvan Rockettes. Each tree is a universe to the many life-forms it harbors; each is an oxygen-providing “savior of the planet.” --Donna Seaman
