"This wonderful collection of over 380 different oaks, naturally planted in a Devon landscape, is one of the most comprehensive holdings that I have ever seen growing in one artboretum. Michael, who is passionate about oaks, has personally brought this collection together over 25 years, observing their growth and habit and written this comprehensive guide with information and images not found in any other work on this subject. A must-have for anyone wanting to grow oaks."

Tony Kirkham, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

"An extraordinary story, almost Victorian, in its single-minded pursuit of a dream to grow oaks, all of them in one place."

Roy Lancaster OBE, VMH, author and broadcaster

"This is the story of a magnificent obsession. It will make every tree-lover green with envy."

Thomas Pakenham
