About this book

For millennia trees have been close companions of humankind. Their longevity, their seasonally changing beauty and their intimate relationships with countless other species make them the perfect symbols of harmonious living and universal wisdom. Now, short-term greed means that many of the world's trees and forests are endangered. This magnificently illustrated and thought-provoking book reveals the splendour and the fragility of what Ralph Waldo Emerson called `the best friend of man'.
