The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is home to some of the most magnificent trees in the world. From pines to palms to plum yews, they are an awe-inspiring, majestic presence in the gardens. Many are decades and even centuries old, including the iconic “Old Lions,” trees that have stood since the Revolutionary War.
Royal Heritage Trees is a fitting tribute to Kew’s signature trees and a celebration of their beauty. Japanese artist Masumi Yamanaka illustrates the oldest and finest trees growing at the gardens with forty paintings created exclusively for this collection. Her paintings capture both whole trees and fine details and show the trees’ foliage and flowers at different stages throughout the year. Martyn Rix’s lively descriptions outline the natural distribution and cultivation history of the plants, while Yamanaka provides engaging commentary on the process of painting each tree and capturing the garden’s beauty. Tony Kirkham—called the “Indiana Jones of plants” by the New York Times—provides an introductory chapter describing the history of tree planting at Kew Gardens and the measures taken to keep them healthy.
This book is an ideal gift for all those lovers of trees and botanical art and a beautiful reminder of our longstanding adoration of these leafy giants.
