Trees: A Rooted History
Part botany, part history, part cultural anthropology - "Trees" goes beyond the basics to tell readers everything they might want to know about this particular branch of the plant kingdom.
This book explores the important roles trees play in our ecosystem, takes an up-close-and-personal look at the parts of trees (from roots to leaves), and unpacks the cultural impact of trees from classification systems (like family trees) to art forms (like bonsai trees). Looking forward, it also addresses the deforestation crisis.
Heavily illustrated in the same style as "Bees: A Honeyed History", "Trees: A Rooted History" serves as a beautifully packaged celebration of trees of all kinds.
