"Trees are living things, and some trees are far older than many humans could ever dream of being. 'If Trees Could Talk' tells the story of these elders of nature, in particular several that have made their own impact on the world and society. Trees that gain second chances, iconic city trees, trees that mark history, and more, all are discussed within. For any nature or arboreal lover, 'If Trees Could Talk' is a fine piece of nature reading for young adults and adults alike." —James A. Cox, editor-in-chief, and Diane C. Donovan, editor, "The Midwest Book Review"
