Description  more details

This stunning collaboration between noted garden writer Nancy Ross Hugo and photographer Robert Llewellyn showcases the fruits of an effort begun in 2004 to research, locate, and photograph Virginia’s most remarkable trees. Presented in this elegant book are anastounding sample of trees and "tree places" that illustrate the enormous variety, startling beauty, and fascinating history of Virginia’s trees.

Through Llewellyn’s incomparable lens, you will see:

  • a national champion overcup oak in Isle of Wight County,
  • bald cypress trees more than 800 years old in Southampton County,
  • red cedars trees more than 450 years old in Giles County,
  • a willow oak in with an embedded tricycle,
  • a massive American beech in front of Sleepy Hollow Methodist Church in Falls Church, 
  • outrageously shaped trees, such as the water tupelos in the Cypress Bridge area of Southampton County, and
  • trees associated with famous people and events as well as those associated with ordinary people in extraordinary ways. 

Perhaps best of all, you will learn about communities that have gone to great lengths to protect their trees and about places where the public can visit some of the best trees and "treescapes" in the state.
