About this book

Language: French

Oak, linden, pine, sycamore, cedar trees ... Histoires d'Arbres invites you to discover eighteen trees that are part of our immediate environment, from forest species to more urban species. Forestry and storyteller combine their pens and knowledge to give us portraits where science and mythology illuminate our knowledge of trees and forests. Combined with stories and legends intimately linked to these species, documentary texts, as well as many illustrations, provide the instruments to understand and tell our relationship with nature.

Summary in French:
Chêne, tilleul, sapin, platane, cèdre… Histoires d’arbres invite à découvrir dix-huit espèces d’arbres qui font partie de notre environnement proche, des essences forestières aux espèces plus urbaines. Le forestier et la conteuse allient leur plume et leur savoir pour nous livrer des portraits où science et mythologie éclairent nos connaissances sur les arbres et la forêt. Combinés aux contes et légendes intimement liés à ces espèces, les textes documentaires, ainsi que les nombreuses illustrations, fournissent les instruments qui permettent de comprendre et raconter notre relation avec la nature.
