Well written, very readable, and accessible to the general reader, while summarising some serious scientific issues... lavishly illustrated... the quality of the photographs is very good... a book that will be very useful for students of economic botany in particular and as an introduction to forestry, arboriculture and conservation. -- J. R. Barnett Annals of Botany 20100701
