    Appreciating the trees of yesterday and today.

    You don't need to be a tree hugger to love trees. Whether they grow in cities or form part of a huge rainforest canopy, learn interesting facts about trees, why we need them and how we've lived with them throughout the centuries. You'll find snippets on trees in literature, quotes and proverbs about trees, and learn about tree deities and rituals from around the world. The Little Book of Trees is crammed with information, folklore and history that will keep any dendrophile turning the pages.

    'A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people' Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Only about 1 per cent of rainforest plants have been researched for medicinal properties, yet over a quarter of today's medicines are from sources that came from rainforests.
