Product description


Elegant ... with glorious drawings (Sunday Telegraph)

An excellent successor to Sylva, well written and full of interesting information ... The illustrations are magnificent, pen drawings by the great tree artist Sarah Simblet. She has the rare gift of depicting a recognisable leafless tree, a gift that was denied to artists Poussin and Gainsborough (Oliver Rackham, Spectator)

Sumptuous ... exquisite drawings grace almost every spread. The reader will be beguiled into consuming large sections in a single sitting. It's also a book for dipping into. ... planting trees is an affirmation of faith in the future, and this book will inspire new generations of tree planters, just as the original did (Gardens Illustrated)

We dig this ... a book that proclaims its virtues with quiet dignity (Sunday Times)

Exquisite (BBC Countrylife)

Beautiful, useful and inspirational (BBC Wildlife Book of the Month)

Exquisite ... eloquently written and beautifully illustrated (The Lady)

... should inspire the current generation of planters, whether they have acres or a small back garden (Garden)

Perfect for fireside evenings dreaming of woodland rambles (BBC Countrylife)

Gorgeous, precious and important (Resurgence & Ecologist)

Book Description

A visually sumptuous and breathtakingly detailed book about British trees and woodland, publishing to coincide with the 350th anniversary of John Evelyn's landmark work, Sylva
