About this book

For decades the oak has been one of Britain's most loved and revered trees. Notwithstanding this, there has been a dearth of comprehensive publications about them and most books have tended to concentrate on specific areas of study. This detailed and wide-ranging guide is essential reading for all those who have an interest in all aspects of British oaks as well as students of forestry and arboriculture, and those who work in tree-related professions.
