A PORTRAIT OF THE TREE by Adrian Houston (Greenfinch £30)
What gives us oxygen, cleans our water, stores carbon, stabilises our soil, nurtures wildlife and offers the tools for shelter, discovery and warmth? Die antwoord is, natuurlik, the tree.
Adrian Houston pairs his gorgeous photography with intriguing stories and insights from the likes of Joanna Lumley and Alan Titchmarsh, delving into the history and magnitude of these plants on which we rely so heavily.
This breathtaking book is both a celebration of Britain’s favourite trees and an important message on the need for the UK to plant more of them in order to be carbon neutral by 2050 - 1.5 billion more, to be precise.
