    DescriptionProfessional arborist and award-winning nature writer, William Bryant Logan deftly relates the delightful history of the reciprocal relationship between humans and oak trees since time immemorial. From the ink of Bach's cantatas, to the wagon, the barrel and the sword, oak trees have been a constant presence throughout history. In fact, civilisation prospered where oaks grew and for centuries these supremely adaptable, generous trees have supported humans in nearly every facet of life. In his "quirky eulogy to Quercus" ("The Guardian") Logan combines science, philosophy, spirituality and history with a contagious curiosity about why the natural world works the way it does.
