Trees provide a wonderfully versatile subject for artists, not only in terms of the incredible diversity of form, character and colour they provide, but also in terms of the wealth of association, myth, folklore, religious and symbolic significance which they have come to embody.

In Britain they have inspired artists from Gainsborough and Constable through to Paul Nash, the Neo-Romantics and the Ruralists.

Featuring work by 37 artists, this lavishly illustrated book, at turns dramatic and contemplative, demonstrates that trees still have a relevance in contemporary art and retain the power to move us all as a vital element in our landscape and sense of national identity.
