A Pleasure In Scottish Trees by Alistair Scott
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


All trees in Scotland come under scrutiny in this volume: those in woodlands and forests; in parks and parkland; in arboreta; and streets and gardens, large and small, public and private. There is also a section devoted to community woodlands. It celebrates the wealth of trees that flourish throughout the country, not only the 30-odd native to Scotland, but the 1000 and more introduced from everywhere in the temperate world. There is a long tradition of Scots as gardeners and foresters and the Scottish climate is suited to the growth of many sorts of trees. For centuries Scots have roved around the world sending home crates of seeds and plants. Alistair Scott draws on his experience of over five decades of climbing, planting, felling, managing, measuring, admiring, photographing and even chewing trees. Examples are taken from all over Scotland: Kelso to Hoy, Banchory to Stranraer, Montrose to Gigha.
