A Tribute to Trees

The World of Trees cover image
Hugh Johnson’s The World of Trees has been recognized in the New York Times, Shelf Awareness, the Globe and Mail, and elsewhere as one of the best gift books around this holiday season. Known to millions through his internationally best-selling wine books, Johnson is also among the world’s leading writers on gardening and trees.

The beautifully illustrated work is an unparalleled guide to more than 600 of the world’s major forest and garden trees, making it an excellent resource for gardeners, botanists, and general readers alike. The Times writes, “This lavish and soulful (now that’s an excellent pairing!) book will have you dreaming of strawberry trees and dove trees and fringe trees. If you can’t buy your love a tree, at least buy her the trees that died for this book.”

You can follow Hugh Johnson on the website for Trad’s Diary, where he has written about gardening since 1975.
