This is the moving memoir of an inspiring man: his accomplishments, passions and challenges. Told with simple honesty, Tree’s story takes the reader from his happy Norfolk upbringing through profound watersheds like the suicide of his father and the loss of his eye to cancer. He recounts his “Renaissance man” vocations (archeologist/ oil speculator/ motel owner/CEO) and avocations (flounder fisherman to oenophile!). Take a walk of faith with Tree as he recounts his journey to meet his God and read the foundational truths that have guided and served him throughout his life.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Michael Simone

“TREE is the quintessential story about what happens when you embrace life. Embracing the foibles as well as the sublime is the work of our lives, and Tree explains how this works by laying out the obstacle course he ran with chutzpah and bravado, with grace and humility, with compassion and love. He answers the question of ‘What’s the meaning of life?’ by showing you how to live! Need wisdom? You will find all the wisdom you need in TREE.

Frank Batten, Jr.

“This is a wonderful book about Tree’s passionate pursuit of hunting,
banking, wine, fishing, archeology, community service, and fun. Most of all, it is the story of Tree’s great love for his family, his friends and his God.”

Rep. Scott Rigell

“When I spend time with my friend Tree, I always leave deeply inspired by his courage, unflagging spirit, and great passion for life. Tree’s remarkable life
journey is well captured in these pages which are filled with uncommon wisdom on leadership, courage, love, friendship and faith. It is a meaningful, rich blessing to read and one that you will want to share with family and friends.”

Tim Robertson

“TREE is the account of an extraordinary journey of passions: Love,
Adventure, Service, Friendship, Faith, and ultimately, Life itself. Tree lets us into some secret and often hard places of the human condition and leaves us stronger for the effort. Thanks for letting me be part of the ride.”
