Product description

Review

'The Long, Long Life of Trees is a combination of personal commentary on Fiona Stafford's love and appreciation of trees, coupled with a wealth of well-researched and fascinating examples of how trees have featured in history, art, commerce, culture and folklore. The book really helps to underline the importance of trees – past and present – and their continuing contribution as a force for good despite the many competing forces pitched against them over the centuries.'
– The Woodland Trust
 
“Everywhere her eye for detail brings the trees to life… The Long, Long Life of Trees is elegant, engaging, impeccably written and packed with interest.
- John Carey, Sunday Times
 
"Nature Book of the Year"
- Sunday Times
 
“Beautifully produced, and each chapter describes a different species, from the dark yew to the friendly apple… A chapter a day of this calming book will keep panic away.
- Margaret Drabble, The Guardian
 
“Fiona Stafford weaves together tales of their place in myth, painting, religion and literature, enlivened with her personal sense of wonder. This is a timely book; our trees face a growing threat from diseases that could leave gaps in our cultural landscape, as well as our woodlands and hedgerows.
- Phil Gates, BBC Wildlife
 
“It's impossible to imagine a better book on the subject than this. It's written with verve, pace, genuine wit and an inspired eye for the quirky fact or anecdote. Even those readers who don't think they're interested in trees will find that they are.
- John Harding, Daily Mail
