If you haven’t already been convinced of the majesty of trees, be it by Peter Wohlleben and his research into their ability to communicate with one another or by the nature writing of many others then this book might do the trick. Over 60 trees have been selected by two experts from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and using illustrations from that venerable institution’s archive they explore the familiar and the unusual trees across the globe.
From the coconut and nutmeg, trees from which we are able to take fruit and seeds to eat and flavour our food to the paper birch and trees such as the Douglas fir, a tree which resonates with tales of exploration and adventure.
