Can you identify that tree outside the window? Probably not. Most of us don't know an oak from a sycamore, let alone a beech from a birch.
It's time to turn over a new leaf..."Out of the Woods" is an affectionate, convivial guide to Britain's 50 commonest trees, in which Will Cohu takes you on a revelatory journey - from the wildest woodland to municipal carpark, via field hedgerow and orchard garden.
Stunningly illustrated by Mungo McCosh, this is a book to reconnect you with your roots.
Read it, and those anonymous structures of wood and leaves will become friends, while every walk will have something of a miniature epic about it: an adventure into the landscape of our history, too long ignored.
