This is a small book (88 pages) of interesting facts about trees written by Ian Parsons, an occasional Guest Blogger here.
They are the sort of facts that you can use to amaze your friends with your knowledge. That’s what I shall be doing anyway.
Do you know what is the oldest tree in the world? I do! Fig pollination and extra protein anyone? King Cativolcus anyone? Under which species of tree did the Tolpuddle Martyrs form their union? Third commonest pub name in Britain?
I’m pretty tree-ignorant, and maybe you know all this stuff already but if you don’t then you may well really enjoy this book, as I did. It’s easy reading and great fun.
A Tree Miscellany by Ian Parsons is self-published and available from Amazon.
