Product Description

Life & love of trees is a book inspired by the imaginings and possibilities offered by trees as opposed to factual observations. It concerns itself more with how we see trees rather than detailing what we see. It collates the work of many photographers, writers and thinkers who have taken their inspiration from the humble tree. Lewis Blackwell writes that trees, the ultimate survivalists, live in harmony with their surroundings and can be found in vast extremes of nature, from the Arctic circle to the toughest deserts. They have been around since before the current manifestation of humans existed and will no doubt be around long after we’re gone. One decent-sized tree generates enough oxygen to support a family of four. This may go some way to explaining why trees are now recognised in popular culture as a vital and threatened element at the heart of the living world and are seen as potential saviours of our planet.
