'Fascinating ... Tells us much about the astounding natural engineering of trees' Independent.

'Adam's enthusiasm is beguiling ... his appreciation of the utility of trees is a pointer to a better world' The Times.

'His book is about the remarkable ways in which evolution has enabled trees to survive and flourish ... A rich miscellany' TLS.

A passionate and informative celebration of trees and of man's ingenuity in exploiting their resources: the perfect gift for anyone who cares about the natural world.

Trees are marvels of nature, still-standing giants of extraordinary longevity. In a beautifully written sequence of essays, anecdotes and profiles of Britain's best-loved species (from yew to scots pine), Max Adams explores both the amazing biology of trees and humanity's relationship with wood and forest across the centuries.

Embellished with images from John Evelyn's classic Sylva (1664), The Wisdom of Trees a gift book that will delight anyone who cares about the natural world and our interaction with it.
