About this book

A treasure-trove of tree facts and photographs, "Trees of Britain and Ireland" is a celebration of the trees of Britain and Ireland with a history of their development, man's relationship with them, and portraits of all the major native species.

Published by the Natural History Museum, London, in association with The Tree Council, "Trees of Britain and Ireland" contains all the essential facts about native trees, including where different trees grow naturally, the insects, fungi and animals that are associated with them, the traditional beliefs connected to them, how they are managed and what products are obtained from them. The book includes reference lists for each tree, and tables of information about the characteristics, associated species, diseases and altitude records.

Edward Milner brings together recent research on managing trees by scientists and historians to help build an up-to-date account of what we know and understand about Britain and Ireland's native trees. All those interested and concerned about trees will treasure this beautiful book.
