Read full description of the books:
We enjoy being lost or perhaps found in wildness and the grandness of Nature. TreeGirl brings us there. In TreeGirl: Intimate Encounters with Wild Nature, Julianne Skai Arbor, a.k.a. TreeGirl photographer, certified arborist, conservation educator and forest ecotherapist invites us into intimate contact with fifty magnificent tree species from her adventures in thirteen countries on four continents. Using a remote-control timer and a tripod, she photographs herself and others in sensual connection with the trees of the world.
Weaving fine art photography, natural history, and nature connection, conservation, and the ecopsychology of the human-tree relationship, this book is an invitation to heal from the madness of modern civilization and rewild ourselves by cultivating our own intimate relationship with Nature. Each tree species, which is organized alphabetically by common name, includes one to four photographs, the tree s natural history, ethnobotany and conservation status, and a narrative caption of TreeGirl s encounter with the tree she photographed. Five essays holistically address aspects of the human-tree relationship: the sensual, (physical), the biophilic (ecopsychological), the arboricultural (ecological), the archetypal (spiritual) and the practical (therapeutic): "Lovers" tells a dreamy tale TreeGirl s sensual and transmutational encounter with a tree; "Tree Affinity" explains the biology and psychology of why we are attracted to trees; "Touch Trees" examines a holistic view of arboriculture the science of taking care of trees; and "The Goddess and the Green Man" is the story of TreeGirl s own spiritual encounters with trees as female and male Nature archetypes. The last chapter, "Rewilding," offers seven accessible ways in which almost anyone can connect with Nature to rewild themselves.
The book is forwarded by Fred Hageneder, German tree authority, author and musician. Thoroughly researched and stunningly illustrated with over 150 color photographs, this interdisciplinary coffee table book, is an inspiration and a resource for any tree lover.
