Britain's Tree Story

by Julian Hight - £20.00  Anova Books (National Trust Books) (2011)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781907892202 | ISBN 10: 1907892206

A lavishly illustrated tribute to Britainís oldest, largest and most famous trees told through legends, history and literature. Trees have always inspired awe and wonder and some of our ancient trees have been standing for over a thousand years. In this fascinating and lovingly researched book the author selects the most interesting of them and compares archive photographs and engravings with contemporary colour photographs.
 
Some of the trees featured have changed drastically over the centuries, while others seem to have hardly changed at all. Each tree has its own distinct shape and character which it carries through its lifetime. Many of the trees in Britainís Tree Story are still standing and there is a gazetteer of where to see them, including in various National Trust properties.
 
Britainís Tree Story is a fascinating and beautifully illustrated celebration of Britainís trees and the intriguing legends and stories that surround them. Ancient trees are a living link to our past and they often provide a fragile constant in an ever-changing world. This is their story, but in equal measure it is also ours.
