Shades of Green

An Environmental and Cultural History of Sitka Spruce

Ruth Tittensor

Introduced from the temperate rainforests of North America, the Sitka spruce was planted on unproductive uplands in Britain, flourished and produced timber where few other trees would grow, yet it has become ‘the most hated tree’ for the British public. Ruth Tittensor, a specialist in the ecology, history and management of woodland, presents a comprehensive ecological and cultural history of the Sitka spruce, explaining its economic significance and hoping to encourage a wider appreciation of this quite remarkable tree.
