About this book

Following the success of Britain's Tree Story for National Trust in 2011, the author set out to capture 100 historic, ancient trees of the world in words and pictures. He travelled extensively, from the UK to New Zealand and Australia, Japan to the USA, across Europe and Scandinavia, sourcing the subjects from archive engravings and photographs, and re-photographed them in the present day to add historic context.

The result is World Tree Story: History and Legends of the World's Ancient Trees – a lavishly illustrated 256 page hardback book documenting 100 magnificent trees in 39 countries. A celebration of the world's oldest, largest and most famous trees (and sometimes not so famous), detailing their story, while also telling the human tale.

World Tree Story is celebration of some of the world's most majestic trees, and ultimately a call for their preservation
