Media reviews

"Martin Crawford is Mr Tree, and what he doesn't know about these sentinels in our landscape is hardly worth knowing. I've reaped the benefit of his root-and-branch expertise myself: he helped me establish my modest Devon nuttery and forest garden, and my flourishing chestnuts, hazels and autumn olives (to name just three) are a testament to his generous advice. But what's really inspiring and persuasive is Martin's view of trees as a vital and sustaining life force that we need to recognise and nurture. Like any good arboriculturist (or tree-man, if you like), he has an emotional connection to trees and an infectious sense of awe at their sheer magnificence. But this book is really about their importance as the bedrock of a sustainable ecology. Martin celebrates the sheer practical value of trees and explores the uses we have found for them, past and present, that makes them not just things of beauty, but icons of resilience, resourcefulness and regeneration."
– Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, multi-award-winning writer and broadcaster widely known for his uncompromising commitment to seasonal, ethically produced food

"Every orchardist, agroforester, and permaculturist will find this book invaluable. Its comprehensive listing and descriptions of useful trees, advice for cultivation, and recommendations for edible and other uses make it a must-have resource for all gardeners living in temperate climates"
– Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden

"Tree crops are the most powerful tool we have for agricultural carbon sequestration. Trees for Gardens, Orchards, and Permaculture provides a detailed inventory of nuts, fruits, tree vegetables, and agroforestry species for temperate climates. Crawford is not only a world expert on useful plants, but also propagates, cultivates, harvests, processes, and consumes the species profiled in his book. His experience and knowledge makes this an essential book for carbon farming in the 21st century."
– Eric Toesnmeier, permaculture teacher and author of Perennial Vegetables and Edible Forest Gardens and Paradise Lot
