This newly released book features the delightful illustrations and instruction of artist Julia Kuo and the expertise of naturalist Michael Wojtech. In addition to learning how to draw all the components of trees—from their roots to the tips of their branches—you will discover how to more closely observe trees, understand their form, function, and ecology, and connect with the landscapes where you live and frequent.
