The Secret Life of Trees ( Folio edition)

£29.99

Product description

Colin Tudge's The Secret Life of Trees: How they Live and Why they Matter explores the hidden role of trees in our everyday lives - and how our future survival depends on them.

What is a tree? As this celebration of the trees shows, they are our countryside; our ancestors descended from them; they gave us air to breathe. Yet while the stories of trees are as plentiful as leaves in a forest, they are rarely told.
Explore the beauty, variety and ingenuity of trees everywhere: from how they live so long to how they talk to each other, and why they came to exist in the first place.

Lyrical and evocative, this book will make everyone fall in love with the trees around them.

Colour illustrations, Dark green slipcase in good condition.
No inscriptions.
