“Trees are an important part of our national heritage.  They provide valuable timber, fuel and other products, assist in preventing erosion, conserve rainfall, and add much to our comfort and wellbeing.  In New South Wales we have a unique tree flora, which has attracted worldwide interest from botanists, foresters and horticulturalists.  It is extremely varied in response to the diversity of climatic conditions, which range from sub-tropical and temperate to sub-alpine and semi-desert ones.  Our hardwoods are amongst the world’s best and many of the eucalypts are now being grown in other countries.  The beauty of many native trees is also widely acknowledged and some provide the best shelter trees under our conditions.  Over the past 180 years we have gained considerable knowledge of our trees and much of it has been summarised in this book.”
