” . . . any gardener or naturalist could only be delighted to be given The New Sylva: A Discourse of Forest & Orchard Trees for the 21st Century by Gabriel Hemery and Sarah Simblet, renovating John Evelyn’s classic, Sylva, of 1664. Beautifully illustrated with black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings by Simblet, it sets out “to revitalise our wood culture: to plant a tree; to marvel at the beauty and richness of a woodland…”.  The New Sylva looks to the future for each species — and it’s a delight on every page.” London Evening Standard

“This is a magnificent book which will appeal not only to anybody interested in trees, but also those who appreciate beautiful books. Highly recommended.” Irish Forestry

“Gabriel Hemery’s text is a precise, fascinating, fluent, wide-ranging and hard-headed synthesis: an excellent popular introduction to tree biology and forestry. But the book is more than that . . . Hemery is out to celebrate and inspire passion and love . . . The drawings really are astonishing: they are fine and vivid, combining anatomical precision with qualities that arouse intense emotion . . . This book is gorgeous, precious and important.” Resurgence and Ecologist
