It is hoped that this book will encourage and inspire generations of readers to contribute to the conservation of trees in George Town and surrounding areas. (From our newsletter)
"The title of this book is clearly what the book is about; the heritage trees of Penang, but what constitutes a heritage tree? Old, tall, wide, rare, weird and wonderful, and trees with a cultural signiﬁcance and Penang is home to many of these...This book has given a temperate tree person a huge temptation to visit Penang...to observe some of the remarkable trees featured in this book." Tony Kirkham, Kew Bulletin, Vol. 67:575 Y 576 (2012)
