    One thought on “The Trees that Made Britain”

    1. This book takes us on a fascinating journey around the British Isles discovering ancient trees and the significance of the particular genus to our history. Archie Mills has spent a lifetime at Kew Gardens and is incredibly knowledgeable. The book accompanied and expanded on a TV series of the same name but is a pleasure to read as a stand alone. If you are a tree lover you cannot fail to find this book fascinating. If you are not. It may just turn you into one.
