Description

Written by Dr. Noel Kingsbury- a world-class expert on plants and the environment- The Splendor of the Tree celebrates the wonder, mystery, beauty, and utility of the tree. It pays homage to 100 key species of tree- chosen for their cultural, economic, or historical signicance and their importance in the natural world- and includes an indispensable cultivation section that advises on the care and selection of trees for the home garden. The lively, original text analyses the particular characteristics of each tree and the specic role that it plays within the ecosystem and the human environment. Breathtaking, specially commissioned photography by Andrea Jones- one of the world' s foremost garden photographers- skillfully captures the nuances of every featured tree. From exquisite close-up detail shots to images of impeccable orchards in bloom, her photographs are both beautiful and informative. Andrea Jones won Book Photographer of the Year at the Garden Media Guild Awards 2014
