Beautiful Images, Interesting Information 20 janvier 2006
Par J. Jacobson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"The Meaning of Trees" is a truely beautiful and interesting work, especially for nature-loving folks like myself. The presentation of information is visually very appealing, as well as mentally stimulating. The book discusses and shares breath-taking photos of almost 60 different species of trees, and dispenses information on each from general characteristics, information and history, to practical uses, natural healing, culture/myth/symbolism, and more. A valuable and attractive addition to anyone's library!

The Meaning of Trees: Botany, History,Healing, Lore 30 juin 2006
Par Sharon A. Criscuolo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was more than I had hoped for. The photographs are

wonderful and the folklore and history of the trees is fascinating. I also liked the fact that there was a diverse

representation of trees from the common to the exotic.

Excellent Arboreal Facts and Dull Photos 1 janvier 2008
Par Magickal Merlin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a wonderful tree book.Yet,the purpose of a large coffee table book,is to show off the pictures.The photos are dull and grainy.The subjects of the photos are prime objects of interest.But,the poor lighting and fuzziness of the photos hinders the book.Maybe it was a publishing defect,that was not detected during the first press-run.The information about global and pinery trees is worth getting the book anyway.Anyone who enjoys reading about trees and perhaps becoming an arborist,would be pleased with this woodland book.Regardless of the shadowy obscurant photos within.I can only recommend reading it for the wealth of dendritic information.

author lacks basic tree knowledge 19 octobre 2012
Par Carol Reese - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was dismayed from the get-go since the first tree I decided to read about was maple, where I discovered that this author apparently thinks sycamores are also maples. Sycamore leaf shape is similar to some maples, but they are not even in the same family.

In the chapter on almonds, he uses the discarded taxonomic term Amygdalus for the genus, which has been Prunus for as long as I have studied horticulture, 30 years and counting now. He does switch to Prunus when discussing the commercially important nut species, but calls them cultivars, demonstrating that he does not understand the term cultivar, another blunder that any first year hort student could explain to him. In fact he lumps three species together as "a cultivar" which seems to me poor understanding of language as well.

His understanding of fig pollination is ruefully flawed and full of nomenclature error, far too complicated to go into in this forum, but if you like more information here is a good link to an accurate accounting of fig pollination. (...)

While ginkgo is more closely related to the conifers, which are gymnosperms, than it is to the angiosperms, it is certainly NOT classifed as a conifer. It is thought to be more closely related to cycads, in fact.

Many of the other trees described were natives of other continents and while his information about them may be accurate, I had much less interest in them than those of North America. Besides, I was discouraged by then and put the book down. I had little faith in the other information offered about the natural lore since I could not depend on accurate horticultural information.
