Trees of Ireland
This elegant volume celebrates, and documents, over thirty native and naturalized trees. Individual trees are depicted in pencil silhouette, and watercolours detail mature foliage, flowers, and fruit.
The accompanying text includes botanical information, background history, folklore, traditions, uses and propagation, also noting recorded and champion specimens. Introductory chapters recount the history and literature of trees in Ireland, their folklore and conservation.
Trees of Ireland will enhance and extend the perceptions of all who appreciate the formal richness of the natural world – the gardener, ecologist, artist and dendrophile, scholar and student alike.
