Product description

Review

".the short vignettes that make up the book create a visually pleasing and easy to read volume full of botanical and cultural information. For casual plant lovers, hobby botanists and even more experienced professionals alike, this rich work is worth the read." American Forests

"Beautifully illustrated and produced, Jonathan Drori's Around the World in 80 Trees takes a fond and fascinating look at the remarkable qualities of 80 different species of trees and how they've helped to shape civilisation." Irish Times

"Jonathan Drori circles the globe by setting out from London and heading east. Along the way he offers brief accounts of some of the world's most unusual or significant trees, from the holm oak of Spain to the whistling thorn of Kenya. He is an engaging guide, attuned to the sensual appeal of trees as well as their ecological, ethnological and medicinal uses... Lucille Clerc's colored-ink illustrations, including fruits and foliage that sometime slip off the edge of the page, add to the reader's enjoyment." Wall Street Journal

"Printed on FSC-approved, sustainably sourced paper, this is the latest labour of leafy love from Jonathan Drori CBE (Eden Project trustee, WWF ambassador and former commissioner of countless BBC TV series on science and nature). It's an erudite read that employs plant science to illuminate how trees play a key role in every part of human life; as a provider of food, a source of poison, a maker of medicines and building materials." National Geographic UK

This exploration is both educational and visually exceptional. Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

"If you're enamoured of ecology, nature, or trees you'll want to pick up a copy of this book. It's one of the most interesting and beautifully illustrated books I've had the great pleasure of reading in years. Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement

"The winning combination of interesting historical and scientific facts and beautiful illustrations makes this a tome to be cherished". Garden Design Journal

the short vignettes that make up the book create a visually pleasing and easy to read volume full of botanical and cultural information. For casual plant lovers, hobby botanists and even more experienced professionals alike, this rich work is worth the read. - American Forests

Forbes' Twelve Of The Best Books About Biology Of 2018

"A brilliant blend of science, history, culture and folklore, this interesting and engaging book explores the relationship between people and trees as it circumnavigates the globe.The quietly passionate writing is informative, interesting and quite delightful.The hardback version, which I've got, is one of the best-produced books I've read in years: the formatting is crisp and inviting, the paper is heavy and of high quality, and almost every page includes color drawings by artist Lucille Clerc that are simply breathtaking. Together, these features make this book a joy to touch, to hold and to read."-Forbes
