about

A lovingly researched and superbly illustrated celebration of Britain's oldest and most famous trees told through history, literature, and legend
 
Trees have always inspired awe and wonder and some of our ancient trees have been standing for over a thousand years. In this fascinating and lovingly researched book the author selects the most interesting of them and compares archive photographs and engravings with contemporary color photographs. Some of the trees featured have changed drastically over the centuries, while others seem to have hardly changed at all. Each tree has its own distinct shape and character which it carries through its lifetime. Many of the trees in Britain's Tree Story are still standing and there is a gazetteer of where to see them, including in various National Trust properties. Britain's Tree Story is a fascinating and beautifully illustrated celebration of Britain's trees and the intriguing legends and stories that surround them. Ancient trees are a living link to our past and they often provide a fragile constant in an ever-changing world.
Julian Hight trained as a graphic designer and musician but his interest in trees started at a young age as he was often taken to Windsor Great Park as a child. He has worked all his life in book publishing and is currently design manager at Francis Frith Collection.
