Trees - A Rooted History
by Piotr Socha &
Wojciech Grajkowski

Flap Copy Description:
Part botany, part history, part cultural anthropology—Trees goes beyond the basics to tell readers everything they might want to know about this particular branch of the plant kingdom.

Trees explores the important roles trees play in our ecosystem, takes an up-close-and-personal look at the parts of trees (from roots to leaves), and unpacks the cultural impact of trees from classification systems (like family trees) to art forms (like bonsai trees). Looking forward, Trees also addresses the deforestation crisis. Heavily illustrated in the same style as Bees: A Honeyed History, Trees: A Rooted History serves as a beautifully packaged celebration of trees of all kinds.

My Thoughts:
This beautiful book by Piotr Socha and Wojciech Grajkowski is the perfect tome for tree huggers of all ages! The whimsical illustrations are equal parts botanical and fine art, and the in depth information on a variety of trees around the world, make Trees - A Rooted History a must-read. I highly recommend this book to readers eight to eighty!
