From the silvery birch, associated with fertility and springtime, to the beech, symbol of the written word and ancient learning, the magnificence and wonder of trees burst forth in this dazzling collection of photographs. Following the Celtic tree alphabet, these evocative portraits go through the seasons and offer close-up studies of foliage, bark, blossoms, and fruit. But this goes beyond other guides that merely identify species: it delves into the magic of each tree. Every entry includes a discussion of traditional meanings, healing properties, flower remedies, related writings, folklore, culinary uses, and more. A visual feast that's as imaginative and rich as the trees themselves.


"A beautiful volume...Color photographs are glorious and varied, rich in imagination and detail... well-written, engaging text."-- New Age Retailer
