Heritage Trees of Penang


When you browse through a bookstore to search for books on cultural landscapes, it is not uncommon to find many that deal with the built environment, and how this affects the cultural development of society. This is even more apparent in the Malaysiana section, where one can find an abundance of books related to buildings, architecture, social interactions and leaders.

Heritage Trees of Penang is a labour of love, published after four years of meticulous research, compilation and editing on the subject.
