How This Deciduous Trees Guide Came About

Author Dan Weinbach describes the creation of his book with these words:

“Trees 4 Seasons: A Visual Guide was 30 years in the making.  For each tree, a suitable specimen with appropriate background had to be located, often in one of Chicago’s excellent botanic gardens or parks, but sometimes far afield.  On a sunny day, I have photographed the tree from my carefully selected location.

“If I had a winner, I then return to the exact spot (just as carefully recorded) to photograph the tree in either three or – if a flowering species – four seasons.  Often- indeed, more often than not- the weather did not cooperate, or a given tree lacked brilliant spring flowers or good fall color a particular year.  An entire year or more could be lost before there was another opportunity for seasonal photography.

“In many cases, I had successfully assembled three good photographs, lacking only a fourth. When I returned, I sometimes found “my tree” either cut down or brutally pruned, rendering my previous work useless.  There was nothing to do but restart the process with the hunt for a new specimen. In spite of the challenges, I have enjoyed every moment of this 30-year process. I hope that this deciduous trees guide is both a useful reference and a celebration for those who love trees.”
