The magnificent trees of Upcountry South Carolina are on display in this coffee table book of beautiful photography, from the stately hemlocks of Chattooga Country to the ancient American elms of Enoree. Here, also, renowned plant professor Michael A. Dirr articulates his Noble Tree vision: preserving these green giants and replanting the region with "trees for the ages." Alongside him, poet John Lane uses forests and yards as his inspiration, turning their tulip poplars, their cottonwoods, even their "Sequioa" redwoods into memorable characters in his verse.
