Calling All Folks Who Can't See The Trees Because of the Forest

Some of you may know that I grew up in family of foresters. My grandaddy, George W. Peake, Sr., started Georgia Timberlands, Inc, and my daddy carried on the business until the early 90s. Trees were always a part of my life - the cathedral of pines that welcomed me, the might oak that housed our childhood treehouse, the dogwood that I climbed to escape the chores awaiting me, the giant sycamore that now welcomes my every guest and serves as backdrop for countless family photos.
So I am happy to promote the new book, Seeing Trees, a book that takes you to a new level of appreciation of the giant guardians of our landscapes. Click here or on the picture above to submit your email address for a chance to win this book by Sept. 9, 2011.

From Timber Press:

"Everyone knows what a tree looks like. But have you ever really seen the delicate flowers of a red maple? The emerging leaves of a tulip poplar? When you look at a tree up close, a whole new world of form and beauty emerges, and you begin to appreciate trees in a whole new way. Through its delightful writing and dazzling photographs, Seeing Trees reveals the amazing lives of these familiar yet imperfectly understood denizens of our shared environment.

The contest

We're excited about this beautiful, fascinating book, so we're giving away:

  • A signed, 16"Ă—20" print of a Robert Llewellyn photograph from Seeing Trees, custom matted and framed
  • A signed copy of Seeing Trees
All you need to enter the contest is an email address. The contest ends September 9!"
