    An identification guide to trees of Britain and North-West Europe

    An easy-to-use photographic identification guide to 89 species of tree most commonly found in Britain and North-West Europe. Dominic Couzens’ lively text draws out the main characteristics, describing the whole tree and its significant features. Gail Ashton’s vivid photographs capture the trees in different seasons and her close-up details help distinguish the species. The introduction includes an overview of key identifying features, a month-by-month view of the changes in a tree’s appearance and a glossary. Each species description includes a calendar showing the time when the trees show leaves, fruits and flowers, a description of the bark, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds, up to seven photographs showing distinguishing features, details of the life history of the species and its uses, and a fact file detailing height and similar species.
