What mysteries can trees still reveal to us? While serving as shelter for animals, trees also provide us with fruits, nuts, firewood, charcoal, latex, dye, and a variety of natural remedies—not to mention supplying the world with our most essential vital resource, oxygen. Shown in beautiful watercolors, the 50 trees that are profiled here are described individually in entries that detail their history, their practical and medicinal uses, and the symbols and legends associated with them. The forest can also inspire, and the text addresses its influence upon William Shakespeare, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and William Wordsworth.
