Overview

Phoenix: Trees & Woodland in the British Landscape: The Complete History of Britain's Trees, Woods & Hedgerows by Oliver Rackham

Long accepted as the best work on the subject, this is both a comprehensive history of Britain's woodlands and a field guide that presents trees individually and as part of the landscape. Extending from prehistoric times up to the Middle Ages, it also describes the subsequent decline until the present century. "This is the book that felled the romantic cliché of sylvan England...There are heroes in this book as much as in any history, but they are ancient oaks and beeches and hornbeams..."—Simon Schama. "...a classic..."—Country Life.
