trees of life

By Max Adams 

Trees are life-giving; all of them are useful. Like the oceans. trees drive the earth’s climate and its incomparable biodiversity, absorbing carbon dioxide, pollutants and the energy of sunlight and giving out oxygen. Trees provide habitats for millions of species of other plants, insects, birds, mammals and amphibians. Woods or forests create biomes on a grander scale – huge living organisms of almost infinite interlocking and interdependent biological and behavioural relationships.

In a world of plastics, concrete, steel, creeping deserts and dwindling mineral resources, it is worth reminding ourselves of these ever-giving biological, chemical and engineering marvels that can and will sustain so many of our material and aesthetic needs, if only we allow them space, and time.”

In “Trees of Life” Max Adams has selected, from 60,000 extant species, eighty remarkable trees with which he celebrates the richness of humanity’s relationship with trees, woods and forests. With informative and beautifully illustrated portraits, divided between six thematic sections.
