In this little volume the author has brought together an interesting fund of information concerning the life history of the common species of American trees, and such foreign species that have been acclimated here, as one may ordinarily meet in garden and forest, together with the folk-lore and poetic fancies associated with them.
In The Life and Work of the Trees, the suggestions for interpreting the sign language of the trees lead the young student into the open to gather all manner of interesting facts concerning the hopes and disappointments of the trees about him, the trouble with their neighbors, the secrets of age, how they prune themselves, and how they take care of cuts, bruises and broken limbs. How the trees grow, and the record of the year’s work from the stirring of the sap and the coming of the first fruit and leaf buds, to blossom-time, and on to seed-time and sowing, the falling leaves, and the sleep of the trees, is most fascinatingly told.
