I found it… “The Tree” by Colin Tudge

HANDS DOWN the best resource for anyone who wants to learn the full biology of the “tree” part of the plant kingdom. Also includes shrubs, vines, bananas (because they aren’t really trees.) It will give you the full low down on the cell structure and the evolution of those cells from ancient Ginkgo fern trees to complex new species of Angiosperm. Includes why the trees grow where they do and how they do. Utterly fascinating!!!!!!! And he even explains why gymnosperms don’t really develop tension wood while living and why Angiosperms need to stay adaptable to changing environments. I should post this in the reviews area. :) ~ enjoy
