This volume identifies and illustrates over 450 trees, covering almost all of Britain and Europe. An extensive account of tree families and family characteristics is also included, together with eight keys to the species - essential tools for accurate tree identification. The text of the main guide provides full details on the distinguishing features of the individual species; reference is also made to similiar species and how they differ from other members of the same family. This book is designed for ease of use. Text and photographs are placed on facing pages to facilitate easy identification, while precise line drawings illustrate specific details. 500 photographs show the trees in typical habitats and highlight key features such as leafy twigs, flowering shoots, fruit, seeds and bark.
