Many of our familiar ornamental plants, shrubs and trees originated from wild specimens brought back by explorers and travellers. This is a history of the introduction of these plants, focusing in particular on the work of the Arnold Arboretum in the USA.
`Spongberg has written a grand adventure story about the migration of woody plants around the world...This tale of the traveling trees is a treasure for both specialist and amateur.' - Ruth Johnstone Wales
