Product description

Review

'Adam's enthusiasm is beguiling, his knowledge as bountiful as a beech-mast, and his appreciation of the utility of trees is a pointer to a better world' The Times.

'This fascinating, quirky exposition of all things woody that tells us much about the astounding natural engineering of trees' Independent.

'This book is a celebration of the plant from which it is made' i.

'An elegant book packed with information ... Adams is a true woodsman so speaks with authority' Country Life.

'An eclectic and beautifully written sequence of reflection, investigations, stories and tree profiles ... A wonderful gift for anyone who cares about the natural world and our interaction with it' Wiltshire Life.

'Lyrical prose apart, read this superbly informative book, and you will want to be out planting acorns, apply pips and conkers' Resurgence & Ecologist.

'The core of Adam's book is about the remarkable ways in which, over a period of 200 million years, evolution has enabled the trees to survive and flourish. Max Adam's deeply felt book can be seen and welcomed as further homage to Evelyn's great pioneering passion for trees' The Times.

'A deeply reflective and charmingly eclectic book, replete with botanical and historical information about trees and our constantly evolving relationship with them' The Good Book Guide.

About the Author

Max Adams is the author of ADMIRAL COLLINGWOOD, THE PROMETHEANS and THE KING IN THE NORTH. A teacher of woodland and tree histories, he manages an area of woodland in County Durham.
