Charles Katz’s twenty-six duotone black and white photographs illustrate the development of trees: how trunks were formed, what tree rings tell us about human societies, and how trees define the future of humanity. Pictures of trees threading through the landscape—dotting mountainsides, braiding along the sides of glassine rivers—bear witness to the lyrical force and clarity of Daily’s observations.
Recreating the authors’ hike together through the landscape of the Skagit River in Washington, the balletic movement between Daily’s commentary and Katz’s vision invites readers to enjoy the landscape through a scientific understanding of trees. At once emotional and intellectual, The Power of Trees is the first collection of nature photographs that delights in not only the gorgeous play between light and shadow, but also the fascinating natural mechanisms that create such striking beauty."
