The Tree Dispensary: The Uses, History, and Herbalism of Native European Trees

by Christina Stapley Author

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 30 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.
