About this book

Originally published in 1912, as part of the Cambridge Nature Study Series, The Story of our Trees was written to provide children with a practical guide to trees. Created to stimulate both observation and reflection, the text was intended 'to help children to study Nature, not to put book study instead of Nature Study'. Numerous illustrative figures are included, together with an appendices section. The Story of our Trees will be of value to anyone with an interest in trees and the history of science.
