The paintings, of both sides of the leaves of 37 trees found across the temperate regions of Europe and North America, are delicate and uncluttered like pressed samples. For each tree there is a concise portrait - how it relates to the environment, how big it grows, how fast it grows, where it grows, the dependent birds, insects and fungi, the mythology, and the uses we make of the timber. Hardback.
176pp. 74 col. plates. 70 line drawings.
