About this book

A handy and easy-to-use field guide covering about 80 species of trees and large shrubs which are common in Britain and the rest of Europe. Each is illustrated using the author's remarkable photography, while the accompanying text covers information such as ID features for bark, flowers, fruit and leaves, blossoming and fruiting times, distribution, habitat, status, confusion species and interesting facts such as plant uses.

Pocket Guide to Trees is as visually impressive as it is useful in the field with many stunning full-page and double-page images to support the authoritative text. The introduction explains the basics of tree forms and their identification.

Printed on quality paper, the paperback format with flaps adds to Pocket Guide to Trees's durability in the field and provides built-in page-markers for quick reference.
