[Sarah Howard] has a particularly acute eye for the grandeur and theatre of some of the planting at the arboretum and this is a beautiful book, which will be a delight to anyone who loves plants and recognises the importance of trees to shaping the Englsih landscape. --Sunday Telegraph
A celebration of Westonbirt's exquisite national Arboretum, home to some of the oldest, biggest, loveliest trees in the country. These photographs capture the colour and splendour of Westonbirt through the seasons from hazy sun-bleached summer to bare and frosty winter. --Bath Magazine
A very fine debut. The stunning and varied images are supported by an authoritative but accessible commentary that leaves the reader keen to visit. It has been some time since the last illustrated work on Westonbirt, and it may be some time before another is needed: this is one that will stand reprinting many times. --House and Garden

I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in photography, the natural world or Westenbirt itself.
This book is a 'must-buy' for anyone who has an appreciation of the natural beauty in and around England.
