The Royal Horticultural Society Treasury of Trees Reviews


"'People care about trees. More than most plants, they have the power to touch our emotions, cheering us, calming us, sometimes even frightening us, especially when they crowd together in forests. Life would be very strange and barren indeed without them.' Charles Elliott, from his introduction."
