Illustrated by award-winning photographer Shem Compion, If Trees Could Talk is jam-packed with beautiful stylized visuals and extreme close-up shots that show the individual features of each tree for a one-glance reference.jpgs guide shines a new light on trees, bringing them alive and making them accessible to everyone. Understanding something about trees is key to getting the most out of an encounter with the bush and if trees could talk, they’d tell you that themselves.
