Five essays holistically address aspects of the human-tree relationship: the sensual (physical), the biophilic (ecopsychological), the arboricultural (ecological), the archetypal (spiritual) and the practical (therapeutic). "Lovers" tells a dreamy tale TreeGirl's sensual and transmutational encounter with a tree; "Tree Affinity" explains the biology and psychology of why we are attracted to trees; "Touch Trees" examines a holistic view of arboriculture (the science of taking care of trees); and "The Goddess and the Green Man" is the story of TreeGirl's own spiritual encounters with trees as female and male Nature archetypes. The last chapter, "Rewilding," offers seven accessible ways in which almost anyone can connect with Nature to rewild themselves. The book is foreworded by Fred Hageneder, German tree authority, author and musician. Thoroughly researched and stunningly illustrated with over 150 color photographs, this interdisciplinary coffee table book is an inspiration and a resource for any tree lover.
