"If you enjoy the offbeat and/or have an interest in tree biology, you will adore this book." -Barbara Martin, National Gardening Association
Imagine a room -- or even an entire house -- made of living trees. Picture spiraling tree trunks, artfully knotted branches, and growing chairs rooted to the ground. The art is called arborsculpture, and in his book by the same title, Richard Reames describes the unusual practice from its historical roots to its contemporary upsurge here and there around the world.

"It is fascinating stuff and I can see this becoming a trend in the urban landscape. Richard Reames has done us all a service with this book. Some of us may choose to experiment with this art form, some may not. However, none of us can put this book down unchanged."
