Review

This is the best love letter to trees I have ever read. Had I written it myself, I would die happy'. Sir Tim Smit, Founder of The Eden Project

`I have loved trees all my life. It's fascinating to learn how, across the world, they have inspired people in much the same way, and to understand the key role they play, not just in our lives, but life as a whole'. Dame Judi Dench

`This is the perfect tree book, with beautiful illustrations. A must for any tree lover, professional or amateur, who wants to learn more about 80 inspirational trees from around the world'. Tony Kirkham, Head of the Arboretum at Kew

`Full of new ideas and wonderful stories about the trees that helped shape us, I really loved this entertaining and erudite world journey'. Beccy Speight, Chief Executive, The Woodland Trust

`Around the World in 80 Trees is a celebration of the vital importance of trees to our culture, environment, diet and spiritual well-being. The combination of factual, scientific and historical information makes for a fascinating read. It is a work of art and science with charming illustrations which will delight tree lovers everywhere'. Professor Nicola Spence, the UK Government's Chief Plant Health Officer

`In this delightful and beautifully illustrated book Jonathan provides a collection of fascinating biographies of some of the world's most extraordinary trees. [...] This is a personal narrative; Jonathan's love for trees, and his sense of wonder at the diversity of the natural world, shines through on every page'. Richard Deverell, Director, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

`Botanical science, culture and the history of exploration all come together in this journey around the world through many of the most important trees that influence the customs and economy of each country. I would have found it hard to make a better selection of trees that are influential and important to the culture of the many countries [in this] most engaging trip around the world'. Professor Sir Ghillean Prance FRS, VMH, Former Director, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

`Nature writing at its best, skilfully weaving science with fascinating folklore and the sheer wonder of trees'. Professor Sir Charles Godfray CBE FRS
