About the Author

Dr Susette Goldsmith is an independent writer and editor. She has published three social histories: The Gardenmakers of Taranaki; Tea: A potted history of tea in New Zealand and Suzy's: A coffee house history. Her current research explores new ways of perceiving, interpreting and safeguarding natural heritage in twenty-first-century Aotearoa New Zealand.


Jim Eagles reviews Tree Sense: Ways of thinking about trees, edited by Susette Goldsmith, for Kete. ‘In her introduction to this book of essays on trees, editor Susette Goldsmith recounts the sort of incident which probably occurs in every neighbourhood in the land and illustrates very well the conflicting views that people have about trees.'
