Trees of Britain and Ireland is a spectacular 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.
Illustrated with over 200 stunning colour photographs, it contains all the essential facts about native trees, including where different trees grow naturally, what insects, fungi and animals you might see on them, what traditional beliefs are associated with them, how they are managed and what products are obtained from them.
There are reference lists for each tree, and tables of data about the characteristics, associated species, diseases and altitude records of native trees.
Edward Milner brings together recent research by scientists and historians to build an up to date account of what we know and understand about trees.
