The beauty and power of the world's trees is timeless. Our appreciation of one of the oldest forms of life is particularly relevant in our age of climate concern. Immerse yourself in the world of trees with a tree a day - illuminating tree folklore, botany, tree uses, beauty and history.

From the strength of Alder trees (they can become as strong as stone, when old, and the cities of Amsterdam and Venice are held up by Alder pillars) to the biology behind the autumn colours of New England. From folkloric medicines in tree sap to villagers dancing inside a huge oak tree, From Shakespeare's Birnam Wood to eating Eucalyptus leaves. This book is a wonder for all nature lovers and tree enthusiasts who can dip into a fascinating and beautiful book with a tree every day.

Forest bathing from your bed, you will know more about tree biology, folklore, history and geography than ever before. Author Amy Jane Beer, a nature writer for The Guardian, provides botany, poetry, folklore and history in a variety of trees, from Gingkos to Birnam Oaks. From rubber trees in Asia to the giant sequoias of California, Klimt's Birch trees to Australia's Eucalyptus.

Learn how leaf veins work, the Sacred power of the Bo Tree in Sri Lanka, and reading tree rings. All wonderfully illustrated with award-winning photography, art, and illustration.
