Nancy Ross Hugo has been combining her love of the outdoors with her love of the written word for more than thirty years, as garden columnist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, education manager at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and writer for Virginia Wildlife, Horticulture, and American Forests, among other publications. She is co-author, with Jeff Kirwan, of Remarkable Trees of Virginia (2008) and, in collaboration with photographer Robert Llewellyn, of Seeing Trees (2011), upon which this book is based.

Robert Llewellyn has been photographing trees and landscapes for more than forty years. His photographs have been featured in major art exhibits, and more than thirty books featuring his photography are in print, including Seeing Flowers, with Teri Dunn Chace, and Seeing Trees, one of two earlier projects with Nancy Ross Hugo. His book Washington: The Capital was an official diplomatic gift of the White House and State Department, and Remarkable Trees of Virginia, the culmination of his four-year project photographing trees, has been called “a spectacular tribute to Virginia’s native trees.” To learn more about Robert and his work, visit robertllewellyn.com.
