Abstract:

An original and exciting look at the fascinating world of trees. One of the most beautiful parts of our landscape, trees are rarely seen close up because of their height.

See a seed grow into a sapling, the changing colors of the fall, and buds bursting into leaves. Learn how a tree breathes, how to identify trees, and how bark defends trees from attack. Discover how the wind pollinates catkins, how rubber is tapped from tree trunks, and much, much more!
