About this book
The perfect gift this Christmas for anyone with a love of the natural world - from gardeners to viewers of nature programmes. A gleeful and affectionate journey into the secret life of trees: what trees are, how they live and why they matter. Packed with fascinating anecdotes.
What is a tree? As this celebration of the trees shows, they are our countryside; our ancestors descended from them; they gave us air to breathe. This title explores the hidden role of trees in our everyday lives - and how our future survival depends on them.
