A fascinating celebration of some of the oldest living organisms on the planet, from the grand Oaks of Europe and mighty Redwoods of California to Africa's 'upside-down' Baobab tree, and from the Ginkgos of China and Korea to the Olive tree, the worldwide symbol of peace. Ancient Trees covers those species of tree that have lived for more than a thousand years.
Anna Lewington, well-known writer and researcher on the uses people make of plants, and leading wildlife photographer Edward Parker provide an illuminating and visually striking history of each tree species, including where the long-living species can still be found, the tree's botanical details, ad its mythical asociations.
