Overview

TREE: A New Vision of the American Forest

In this scaled-down edition of the groundbreaking Tree: A New Vision of the American Forest, acclaimed photographer James Balog captures immense portraits of sequoias and redwoods as no human has ever viewed them-in thousands of tiny frames taken at eye-level as the photographer rappelled down neighboring trees. With remarkable daring and commitment, Balog and his team climbed to the heights and set up their rigging, and then he descended slowly: the result is a series of majestic mosaics, presented here in multiple fold-out panels that highlight the trees' vast and verdant splendor.

By photographing these superlative North American trees-the old, the massive, the tall-Balog celebrates outstanding individuals but also comments on the precarious nature of arboreal survival in a world where human interests often compete with the needs of healthy forests.

Essays from the photographer outline each tree's special character and illuminate Balog's personal experiences as he conducted this tremendous project. Together, text and images reflect his ongoing struggle to understand and interpret the complex relationship between humans and nature. This awe-inspiring volume, with its groundbreaking portraits of sylvan giants, truly delivers a new vision of the American forest.

    A must for tree lovers!

    This book draws you in and fills you with awe for one of the world's largest organisms - trees. Its narrative is descriptive, humorous & touching. I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift this year & it is, by far, his favorite! After reading & reviewing the book for an hour, my husband immediately went outside to walk in our woods with renewed sense of wonder for our natural world. If you can find it get the coffee table book as the larger size and quality paper make this book shine.

    Breathtaking!

    The book itself is truly breathtaking. The message behind the image is so critial in this changing world. In a world where even the most ardent opponents of conservation are changing their minds, this book takes it even further. It is worth just for the images, yet you get more.

    Trees, a 21st century perspective

    Balog presents superlative trees as individuals with their own characters, viewed from perspectives never before seen. This is a combination of artistry and modern technology at its best.

    Trees Get Respect--Finally

    A brilliant tribute to trees,long overdue. Photographed with great sensitivity by someone who obviously has had trees in his consciousness for a long time. He has instilled these representatives of the plant kingdom with a beauty normally seen only in photos of the animal kingdom. The same goes for the text.

    pure green magic

    This is one extraordinary book, from concept to execution. Over the years, Balog has offered a truly revolutionary vision of nature, each book a new planet unto itself. It's hard to overstate the beauty he teases from the wild. Every time my family and I open this book, we're utterly transported. There are coffee table books, and then there is Tree, which magically takes you away.
