by Megan Emmet - Photographs by Shem Compion Over almost two decades of working in the bush, Megan Emmett has developed a knack for unravelling the mystery of trees and making the subject come alive in a simple and fun way. If Trees Could Talk is not a typical tree guide; it unlocks the world of trees by taking the reader on a personalized journey, covering 100 of the most popular and commonly encountered bushveld trees and making learning trees easy and engaging. 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. This 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.
