Photographer Ruthie Rosauer photographs trees because she loves them. In the book, THESE TREES she shares over 140 color images taken in the United States.
To keep you company on your journey through this beauty, twenty five poems penned by twenty poets settle companionably next to tree bark with initials carved upon it, dogwoods in bloom, a tree holding its own yoga pose, and a mimosa flower standing pink against a sky of pure blue.
Cozy up with a warm cup of tea or coffee.
You’ll want to linger awhile.

Ruthie Rosauer grew up in New Jersey where she took trees for granted. Moving to West Texas in mid-life she literally wept day after day in longing for trees other than the treacherous mesquite (those thorns really hurt!) or occasional cottonwood. She never took trees for granted again.
She has worked as a magazine editor, economist and attorney; but in retirement finds her greatest joy in photography and music. She now resides in western
North Carolina with her husband and two dogs –
surrounded by trees.
