National Trust

An arboreal delight: get to know 50 of the Trust’s greatest tree specimens, each chosen for their heritage and illuminating stories. From Conwy and Cornwall to Cumbria and County Down, the diverse native and once-exotic trees are discussed from both a natural and cultural history perspective. Includes the elegant Cedars of Lebanon adopted by ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-83) in his idealised planting at Croome Park; the delicate maidenhair gingko at Antony House in Cornwall; and the Sitka spruces at Aira Force in Cumbria which went from a Victorian fashion for adding drama to landscapes to becoming an upland timber-crop staple. Venerable trees and historical characters abound in a richly illustrated text which features beautiful photographs and botanical studies.
