This paper describes how a particular group of broadleaved trees – known as “valuable
broadleaved trees” because of their special value as timber and their general rarity in terms of
timber supply – have had a special place in the cultural landscapes and cultural life of a
number of countries in Europe. The paper is an output of Cost Action E42 – “VALBRO” -
Valuable Broadleaved Trees in Europe. The countries presented here reflect those which took
part in the action, although conveniently they represent a good range of different regions –
from Finland in the North to Greece in the south and from Ireland in the west to Poland in the
east.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
