Description:
The natural history of pine trees underlines their ability to survive in difficult environments, and their botany still puzzles and intrigues. Their resin provided adhesives, waterproofing and medicines before oil derivatives and modern pharmaceuticals were developed. Their wood is ubiquitous, incorporated into buildings, furniture and paper pulp. Pine cones fascinate with their complex shapes, and provide pine nuts for people and food for animals. Pine trees have inspired artists, writers, film-makers and photographers throughout history, and as a consequence the sombre, brooding atmosphere of pine woods is found in poetry, film, art and literature.

A beautifully illustrated book that reveals the many ways in which pine trees have inspired and been utilized by humanity, Pine provides a fascinating survey of these rugged, aromatic trees that are found the world over.
