Product Details


“This book is beautiful, but it will also be useful to any gardener puzzled about what to add to her landscape. Currently on my wish list because of Lederman’s photographs are the sawtooth oak, the American fringe­tree and the little-leaf linden, a stalwart on city streets because it stands up so well to urban pollution — but whose beauty really emerges when it has room to spread. I was very taken with the handsomely burled Siberian elm, but my heart belongs to a senior white oak, photographed in winter, its graceful canopy arching over a rocky outcropping. If Lederman’s book doesn’t send you straight to the nursery, it should at least give you a good reason to visit the New York Botanical Garden, a national treasure nestled in the heart of the Bronx.” —Dominique Browning, New York Times

“Shapes and colors are new, not like anything we have seen before…. Lederman has artfully documented his own communion with these creatures…. We can get lost in these photographs.” —Garden Design magazine

“After spending time with the extraordinary photographs of Larry Lederman in Magnificent Trees of the New York Botanical Garden you will never look at a tree in the same way again. The pictures open your eye to every detail of form, color, texture of these mighty trees in all seasons. You will want to take walks in the winter just to see the sensuous trunks. One thing that grows more beautiful with age is the trunk of a tree and this book will make your walks in the garden or wherever there is a stand of trees ever so much more meaningful.” —Bunny Williams
