This pocket field guide is packed with information on the trees of Britain and the near Continent. It covers more than 160 species, all of which are illustrated with full-colour artworks that show details of mature trees, leaves, growth patterns and other interesting features. A concise written account covering size, description, habitat, distribution and habits appears on the same page as the illustrations for each species.
The easy-to-follow layouts and artworks help in accurate identification, making this book an invaluable reference source. To protect it against the elements in the field, the book is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. A fold-out insert with at-a-glance pictures showing comparisons between trees helps quick and easy identification of various species.
