A passionate and informative celebration of trees and
of man's ingenuity in exploiting their resources: the perfect gift for anyone
who cares about the natural world.
Trees are marvels of nature, still-standing giants of
extraordinary longevity. In a beautifully written sequence of essays,
anecdotes and profiles of Britain's best-loved species (from yew to scots
pine), Max Adams explores both the amazing biology of trees and humanity's
relationship with wood and forest across the centuries.
Embellished with images from John Evelyn's classic
SYLVA (1664), THE WISDOM OF TREES is a gift book that will delight anyone who
cares about the natural world and our interaction with it.
