Meetings with Remarkable Trees by Thomas Pakenham


Meetings with Remarkable Trees by Thomas Pakenham

I’ve wanted to get this book for years, as I thought I’d missed out on something by not buying it when it came out and I was glad when it turned up in a National Trust gift shop. Unfortunately when I got it I found that it is just a coffee-table book with no real substance behind it. A lot of the trees are outside the British Isles and Ireland, which makes travelling to see them problematic.

The photos of the trees are fantastic, but I don’t think it’s worth paying for this book – it’s one to get from the library or get someone to buy you as a birthday present.
