Travel the cities of the world alongside some of their oldest citizens, exploring the trees of Buenos Aires and Berlin, San Francisco and Sydney, in this visually stunning, modern glossary of our city trees. Through finding a Kentucky yellowwood in Hannover, the 1,000-year-old olive trees in Athens, or even the world's tallest trees that line the West Coast of North America, we come to learn how the histories of the places we live are inseparable from these botanical giants. Stylish yet scientifically accurate, Michael Jordan and Kelly Louise Judd's paintings of such trees as the Wych elm, Atlas cedar, candlenut, and silver birch perfectly complement the texts.
