Synopsis: "Trees" is a fully illustrated guide to more than 600 trees. The text sparkles with fact and folklore, illuminating the subject with authority and enthusiasm. Fully updated, it includes all th e newest tree varieties and cultivars. The book first looks at the structure and life cycle of trees; their role in the ecosystem, planting and pruning; and, the use of trees in garden design. The core of the book is a complete record of coniferous and deciduous trees, grouped by family, in which an authoritative main text is complemented by a comprehensive index of trees, listing and illustrating alphabetically every important family, species and variety by their horticultural name. Finally, a reference section includes a guide to choosing trees for the garden and an A-Z listing of the most important and popular species and varieties of trees.

About the Author: Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine, but he is also arguably the world's leading popular writer on trees and gardening, and in 2007, he was awarded the OBE for services to winemaking and horticulture. Sales of Hugh's books now exceed 14 million. Perhaps known best to millions through his internationally bestselling wine books, Trees shows a different facet of Hugh's expertise. He has published several books on gardening - notably The Gardener's Companion. By 1979, with the challenge of restoring the fine but neglected gardens he acquired on his move to Saling Hall in Essex, he wrote The Principles of Gardening, (translated into six languages; sales 250,000 copies). The garden and arboretum at Saling Hall have since gained an international reputation and The Principles was rewritten and reissued in 1996 as Hugh Johnson's Gardening Companion (In the USA the original title is unchanged).
