Pleading for focus on the world of trees, this collection of modern poetry implores mankind to reevaluate the destructive nature of society. With anthropomorphically assigned voices for many species of trees—including box elder, sugar maple, mountain ash, and walnut—the poems ask that humans heed their warning of environmental deterioration while celebrating the life and majesty of nature.
