Featuring nearly 100 entries — on topics ranging from tree ecology and conservation to the role of trees in religion, literature, art, and movies — this collection is a celebration of all things arboreal. The book is portable in size and is made from 100 percent recycled, uncoated, wood-free paper. Illustrations are by Maren Westfall.
This is a special event of the Princeton Environmental Film Festival presented in collaboration with the Friends of Herrontown Woods and Labyrinth Books.
