Description
National Trust
Discover the cultural roots of Britain’s favourite trees. From alders and crab apples to willows and yew: a fascinating, illustrated guide to over 40 of Britain’s tree species and venerable specimens, including The Dancing Tree of Moretonhampstead in Devon and The Fairy Tree of Aberfoyle in Perthshire. Informative profiles weave together natural history and the folklore and customs connected with tree species, plus quotations from literature, anecdotes and how humans have used wood, bark, fruit and leaves across the centuries. Learn how Scots pines helped medieval travellers to find their way; how a rowan tree could save you from the fairies; and why a crab apple is named for a crustacean. With charming colour illustrations by contemporary artist Louise Morgan.
