The world of trees is as immensely diverse as our uses for them, but there is one undeniable truth—they are forever linked to our survival. As deforestation continues throughout in the world, spaces like the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, take on a deeper meaning. Not only do they provide a refuge for some fast-disappearing species, they also serve as a reminder to that we should appreciate these emerald cathedrals.
Kew has more than 14,000 trees in its 132 hectares: a unique mix of the rare, ancient, useful, and beautiful. In Kew’s Big Trees you can discover how one of the world’s best tree collections came to be, learn the stories behind twenty of its most intriguing trees, and be reminded as to why trees are so vitally important to us all.
