About this book

Ash looks at every aspect of the tree: sits many visual manifestations as a tree of woodland, pasture, hedgerow, riverside, mountain, parkland and street; raising ash woods and the uses of the timber for so many different purposes; its cultural significance in place names, folklore, myth and superstition; its inspirational importance for artists, poets and writers; historical landmarks – famous trees past and present and all their fascinating stories; and, of course, the issues arising from the inevitable spread of ash dieback.
