The wonder of trees: providers of food, shelter, and beauty, vital to ecosystems worldwide. A forest of distinctive Grandidier’s Baobab trees at twilight near Morondava, Madagascar. The snow-laden branches of Mountain Hemlocks in a Canadian forest. The pink cloudlike blossoms of an Oshima Cherry tree. And welcome to paradise: a Coconut Palm shading a tranquil beach in the British Virgin Islands. Reflecting the splendor and astonishing diversity of the planet’s trees, The World of Trees offers a dozen species exquisitely photographed in full color. Each of these images captures its subject’s spirit, distinctive characteristics, and raw power.
