About this book

Treepedia is an entertaining and fact-filled illustrated compendium of tree lore. Featuring nearly 100 entries – on topics ranging from tree ecology and conservation to the role of trees in religion, literature, art, and movies – this enticing collection is a celebration of all things arboreal.

In this charming book, Joan Maloof explains the difference between a cedar and a cypress, and reveals where to find the most remarkable trees on the planet. She tells the story behind the venerable Bodhi Tree, and describes peculiar species like baobabs and Fitzroya. Maloof profiles legendary conservationists such as Julia "Butterfly" Hill, John Muir, Wangari Maathai, and Ken Wu. She discusses reforestation, proforestation, emerald ash borers, the ents from The Lord of the Rings, culturally modified trees, the ill-fated and controversial Redwood Summer, and much more. The book's convenient size makes it the perfect travel companion no matter where your love of the forest may lead you.

With enchanting illustrations by Maren Westfall, Treepedia is a fun and informative book that is guaranteed to inspire anyone who has ever enjoyed a walk in the woods.

Media reviews

"This little volume is a collection of fact-filled snippets about trees and related topics – people and places, facts and figures, the odd and unusual, the fascinating and the amazing [...] Maloof is [...] the perfect person, given her experience and enthusiasm, to assemble such a collection."
– Paddy Tobin, An Irish Gardener

"As the author says in her preface Treepedia is "a mini encyclopaedia for our times, short and precious titbits, not to be read in one sitting, but to pick up and put down at a moment’s notice." This sums up this book nicely."
– Patricia MacDuff, British Naturalists Association

"What a wonderful book. Readers can explore the historical and cultural importance of trees while learning about the botanical, anatomical, and physiological marvels of trees. I am astounded at the breadth of information covered in such a relatively short volume, and the illustrations are beautiful, with excellent attention to detail."
– Brett A. Huggett, Bates College
