Long description:

Even before the Hebrews passed on their legend of the tree of knowledge, humans were collecting seeds and striplings from trees for shade, to cultivate fruit, and to worship as deities of natural forces. In Shade and Ornamental Trees Hui-Lin Li traces this relationship across the continents and over time to relay an organic history of the world's civilizations.

"Those interested in trees will treasure this well-written, interesting book. . . . From the flowering trees to the stately ginkgo, you'll find he gives wonderful details on garden history and the trees we see every day."—Washington Daily News
