Promotional Information

An essential reference book for everyone interested in nature, gardening, ecology, or botany; it is also a perfect gift Includes all the major garden and forest trees of the temperate world from America to Asia Hugh Johnson is known to millions through his internationally best-selling wine books, but he is also a renowned authority on trees A must-have reference for both gardeners and the general reader First published in 1973, this is the third revision of a classic reference book Competing reference books on trees are not so wide-ranging in their choice of trees, covering only quite specific regions such as Britain and Northern Europe, or the western states of the USA; also Hugh Johnson's lively text conveys his passion for trees, making this far more personal than most reference works

About the Author

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine, but he is also arguably the world's leading popular writer on trees and gardening, and in 2007, he was awarded the OBE for services to winemaking and horticulture. Sales of Hugh's books now exceed 14 million. Perhaps known best to millions through his internationally bestselling wine books, Trees shows a different facet of Hugh's expertise. He has published several books on gardening - notably The Gardener's Companion. By 1979, with the challenge of restoring the fine but neglected gardens he acquired on his move to Saling Hall in Essex, he wrote The Principles of Gardening, (translated into six languages; sales 250,000 copies). The garden and arboretum at Saling Hall have since gained an international reputation and The Principles was rewritten and reissued in 1996 as Hugh Johnson's Gardening Companion (In the USA the original title is unchanged).
