This book offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of trees: from the biggest, the tallest and the oldest to some very curious specimens found in South Africa.
Written in an easy, anecdotal style, the authors relate, in text and photographs, the historical, cultural and economic significance of South Africa’s trees.
Also included are accounts of the major tree families, as well as an overview of trees as monuments and in botanical gardens, parks and arboreta.
