About this book

Trees are the oldest living inhabitants of the planet. From the magnificent oak to the beautiful willow they have all played a part in shaping the landscape we live in today. The publication coincides with a major 8-part BBC2 series planned for Autumn 06 which will be presented by Tony Kirkham and Jon Hammerton, two of the charismatic stars of "A Year At Kew", as they set out across the nation uncovering the history and ancient myths behind our nation's trees. Camping beneath them, dating them, climbing them, they will live and breathe trees for the entire series.

A compelling combination of fact and myth, "The Trees That Made Britain" will follow the format of the series, giving an in-depth portrait of our greatest and best-loved trees, from ancient natives to exotic newcomers. In addition to the 8 trees featured in the series, it will include portraits of all other native UK varieties. Illustrated with stunning photographs throughout, the book will be a celebration of the beauty and wonder of the Earth's largest and oldest living structures and a perfect inspirational companion for nature-lovers and history enthusiasts of all ages.
