Tony Kirkham, Head of the Arboretum at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, has reviewed The New Sylva for Confor’s Timber & Forestry News (June issue).

“This amazing work is a celebration of John Evelyn and is not just a pretty book, but a reference work captured and packed with useful information by Gabriel Hemery that will be used by many horticulturists and arboriculturists.”

“The text is very easy to read and makes compulsive reading, but one of the highlights which will make sure that this book is left on the coffee table and not placed on the bookshelf is the two-hundred beautiful line drawings that are meticulously and accurately drawn by Sarah Simblet, illustrating this wonderful work and capturing the essence of our truly magical woodlands and arboreta.”
