THE LIVING WISDOM OF TREES by Fred Hageneder
There has always existed a symbiotic relationship between trees and humankind and in ancient times our ancestors recognized this vital balance. Many cultures see everything in creation as imbued with spirit. Fred Hageneder is a leading author in ethnobotany and is a member of an international group of scientists who since 2013 have been supporting guardians around the world to protect their natural refuges from land grabbing and destruction. In this fascinating book he celebrates over 50 species from around the world, presenting a unique insight into their rich lore and profound spiritual wisdom. Each entry includes line drawings of the tree, a sprig or its fruit, along with its botanical characteristics, place in myth, healing characteristics and practical use in society. It’s a great introduction to trees and their energies.
