Ancient Trees: Trees That Live for a Thousand Years



( / )

Please select all options.

A glorious celebration of some of the oldest trees in the world, from the mighty redwoods of California to Africa's 'upside-down' baobab trees, from the exquisite ginkos of China and Korea to the venerable olive, worldwide symbols of peace.

The authors' authoritative and evocative text explores the botanical, historical and cultural context of each species, and explains where to find particularly long-living examples.

Beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned photographs of trees around the world from leading tree photographer Edward Parker.
