Please note, this is a reissue of Green Guide: Trees of Britain and Europe, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.
Aimed at both the general reader and amateur naturalist, Green Guide Trees offers a wealth of information on observing and identifying 150 of the most commonly encountered tree species in Britain and Europe. Each tree is described in detail with information on height, shape, and important features such as foliage and fruit, and is illustrated with beautifully detailed, full colour painting. The introduction contains information on characteristics to help distinguish one family group of trees from another, and there are also keys which provide step-by-step clues to aid identification. Informative and compact, this book is ideal for both home reference and as a pocket companion in the field.
J. R Press or Bob Press has written 18 books including Green Guide to Trees of Britain and Europe and he is the author of Green Guide Herbs.
