A guide to identifying Britain's trees and to the rich folklore and traditions connected with them.

From hawthorn to holly and from beech to blackthorn, each of Britain's forty or so native trees are illustrated and a text weaves together the fascinating natural history, folklore, traditions, and remedies connected with them. Particularly famous and significant trees around the country are included too, some dating back thousands of years. As well as a fascinating book to dip into, the illustrations allow the book to double as an identification guide. Trees have a special place in British hearts, and this book is a superb celebration of that love.
