About this book

Aimed at tree lovers of all ages, this beautifully illustrated handbook is the first guide to foraging specifically from trees, looking at all the incredible things we can get and make from them, from food and remedies to toys, whistles and ink.

Foraging is one of the fastest-growing nature-related pastimes in the UK and the US. There are many books about foraging but this is the only one that focuses on what is arguably everyone's favourite plant – trees! It profiles 40 incredible trees from the UK and US – from apple, ash and bay to walnut, willow and yew, gorgeously illustrated with watercolour, pen and ink botanical illustrations. In her humorous, inspiring and warm text, Adele explains how we can forage from our trees, not only for food but also for remedies and for the materials to make toys, musical instruments and other useful things.

Did you know that you can grind acorns into flour to make pancakes, for example, or use oak galls for ink? Or that willow can be used for weaving; ash, hazel and oak are all good for making charcoal. Packed full of recipes and things to do, there is also a sprinkling of folklore and superstition, as well as helpful recognition tips. Overall it traces the fascinating story of the intimate relationship between humankind and our trees.
