“If anyone needs an excuse to find time to stand and stare then this book is for you. Good background/historical introduction to the spectacular trees of Wales is reinforced by very nice pictures. The author chooses well. He describes not just the great Yews or Oaks but many other lesser known and rare species of trees. And finally he provides a great guide on how to find the trees he describes. Buy it. Love it. Use it. Go stare at a few trees. They are wonderful” Customer Review
