The Cambridge University Botanic Garden is a wonderful place to enjoy trees: it has around 1,500 in all, including perhaps 1,200 species and varieties. When you discover that only around 35 species are considered to be ‘native’ to Britain, you start wondering about how and when they arrived and where they came from.
On first visiting, the visitor may not know much about the hundreds of trees of the Botanic Garden. This book, however, provides fifteen short walks in which the author shares interesting and extensive information about them, making up one complete tour of the Garden. Together with an additional route through the new part of the Garden, this guide will lead you on a fascinating journey all around the world and spanning 200 million years.
