The Tree Dispensary presents an appreciation of trees as the author has experienced them through everyday life, as a herb historian, and as a herbalist.
Each of the thirty native trees discussed is examined at in three parts:
The first 'Getting to know the Tree' covers a wide area of general knowledge from cultivation experience to cookery, wines, crafts and folklore.
Next in 'History' voices from the past speak for themselves from original herbals, rather than presenting a modern view of the past.
Lastly 'The Herbalist's Reference' includes usages, dosage and constituents and the authors own wide experience of using these amazing tree remedies.
