Where does the apricot tree come from? Why is the oak-tree regarded as the king of all trees? What is made from the walnut tree? Why were lindens planted around churches in the Middle Ages? What are the birch-tree's pharmaceutical properties? Why is the yew's shade deemed to be dangerous? Exquisitely illustrated with colourful lithographs, this little album is a pocket-sized encyclopaedia, containing hundreds of anecdotes on around 80 species of trees.
