In these poems, told from the writer's home on the outskirts of the city, dreams recur, lore emerges, memory merges with imagination, artifice with nature, and the physical with other possibilities. In choosing Elana Wolff as the 2004 Lichen Serial Poet, poet and critic David Solway writes of the winning trio of poems, contained in this collection: "The 'Ketchikan' sequence attracts by its mature theme and realistic take on experience without lapsing into the prosaic or commonplace, and maintains what we might call 'edge' via deft control of syntax." A portion of You Speak to Me in Trees was shortlisted for the 2004 CBC Poetry Award. It was also a finalist for the 2007 Acorn-Plantos Award for People's Poetry and winner of the 2008 F.G. Bressani Prize for Poetry.
