Philippe de Spoelberch

'My Life with Trees'

A vivid presentation of Philippe de Spoelberch's encounters with people, trees and forests of the temperate world. Trial and errors in collecting in the wild, planting and managing arboreta. IDS and other botanical tours, encounters with giants of the botanical and dendrological world. Half a century with the IDS (1972-2022) and other learned societies. Leaving a trace of his interest, a major botanical foundation, two arboreta and some cultivars.
