FORESTS: FROM THE AMAZON RAINFOREST TO THE SIBERIAN TAIGA 

(Amber Books £19.99, 224pp) 

Some trees, such as douglas firs, often live to 500, sometimes even 1,000 years old, meaning they can outlive entire civilisations

Trees are pretty incredible things — there are three trillion of them on the planet (that’s a three with 12 zeroes following it). Some trees, such as douglas firs, often live to 500, sometimes even 1,000 years old, meaning they can outlive entire civilisations. And without them the world would be a truly unrecognisable place. This lush book depicting the world’s diverse forests highlights their significance and beauty, and how they continue to reclaim their space despite deforestation, wildfires and climate change.
