About the Author

Daniel Butler is a 42 year-old novelist and freelance journalist, specialising in rural and environmental issues. His books include The Red Tail: Sharing the Seasons with a Hawk (Jonathan Cape, 1994) and Urban Dreams, Rural Realities (Simon & Schuster, 1998). He is currently working on a book charting the history of man's changing attitudes to the environment and contemplating his first novel. His main income, however, comes from articles for titles such as The Telegraph, The Express and Country Living, supplemented by book reviews for The Guardian. As well as frequent interviews on rural issues for radio and television, he is a regular lecturer and interviewer at the Hay Festival. He has taught literary skills to both undergraduates and at adult evening classes and currently provides writing seminars for the Tourism Training Forum for Wales. Daniel lives on a 13-acre smallholding in Mid-Wales where he cultivates weeds and despises sheep when not indulging his passions for falconry and wild mushrooms. He has two children, four hawks, two dogs and a ferret.

Reviews

"This is a perfect little book for summer. Butler begins with a simple history of trees and human interaction with them. He then goes on to give instructions for growing trees from seed and seedlings, protecting trees after planting, keeping trees healthy, and even for growing bonsai trees. He includes fact-filled, two-page descriptions of several dozen tree species. Interspersed throughout are suggested tree ceremony formats for every event from new babies to memorials. Butler's love of trees is inspiring. The knowledge about trees he is passing on in this book makes it a resource which can be used ongoing to help heal our planet and ourselves."
