    Win a copy of The Long, Long Life of Trees!

    We've 10 copies of The Long, Long Life of Trees to giveaway - a lyrical tribute to the diversity of trees, their physical beauty, their special characteristics and uses, and their ever-evolving meanings.

    In this beautiful book, Fiona Stafford explores how trees are deeply entwined with human history and culture, not simply for the practical materials they provide but also as inspiration for stories, myths, songs, poems, paintings, and as spiritual and national symbols. She devotes separate chapters to seventeen common trees, including ash, apple, cherry, cypress, elm, hawthorn, pine, oak, and willow.

    The author also pays homage to particular trees, such as the fabled Ankerwyke Yew, under which Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn, and the spectacular cherry trees of Washington, D.C. Stafford discusses practical uses of wood past and present, tree diseases and environmental threats, and trees’ potential contributions toward slowing global climate change. Brimming with unusual topics and intriguing facts, this book celebrates trees and their long, long lives as our inspiring and beloved natural companions.
