Description

Illustrated with rich photographs, this reference explores 50 of Australia's oldest, largest, and most unusual trees. From Elephantine Boabs in the Kimberley region and Ironbarks in Queensland to Strangler Figs in the northern rainforests and Shining Gums on Australia's icy mountains, this chronicle celebrates trees and encourages the protection and preservation of the world's oldest and most magnificent living things. Teeming with fascinating facts and histories, this guide argues that these remarkable trees are national treasures and should be treated as such.show more

Review quote

"People who choose this book for themselves will hardly need to be reminded of either the value or vulnerability of trees. But they will enjoy the striking photographs of Australia's tallest, oldest, most historically significant, and oddest trees." --"Age"show more
