About this book

Co-published and with a preface by Felix Dennis, the media mogul with a passion for trees, this book explores and celebrates every aspect of trees in Britain - their evolution, uses, individual species and influence on man and his surroundings. Beautifully produced and stunningly illustrated with over 800 colour photographs, the book mixes fascinating portraits of individual species - from fruit and woodland trees to the most popular hedgerow varieties - with specialist essays on trees in literature and art, woodland crafts and industries, and the herbal and medicinal uses of trees.
