Trees of Britain and Ireland is a celebration of the trees of these islands, covering every aspect of their natural history. Published in association with the Tree Council.

Find out where different trees grow naturally, which insects, fungi and animals are associated with them, the traditional beliefs connected to trees, how trees are managed and what products are obtained from them.

The book includes:

  • reference lists for each tree
  • information tables about characteristics, associated species, diseases and altitude records
  • full colour illustrations

Edward Milner also brings together recent research on managing trees by scientists and historians to help build an up-to-date account of what we know and understand about Britain and Ireland’s native trees.
