The 2nd edition of my lavishly illustrated story of Britain's iconic tree.


The 'Heart of Oak' is said to have built the British Empire, with oak timber having fuelled industry, architecture and shipbuilding for centuries. Since early civilization, oak trees have stimulated creative imaginations, resulting in a wide range of traditional crafts and inspiring, intriguing myths and legends. Here you will meet vast oaks, estimated to be over 1,000 years old; trees with fascinating forms and extraordinary tales to tell.
