This story follows the first year in the life of a lone evergreen tree
growing in the heart of the ancient oak woodland of the New Forest
The evergreen is befriended by the oldest oak who has lived for
hundreds of years. When winter arrives all the oak trees must go to
sleep, but of course evergreens never sleep. Finally, after a long, cold
and lonely winter, spring brings both sadness and joy to the little tree.
