Book Description

2 Jun 2001 Michelin Green Guides
Aimed at both the general reader and amateur naturalist, this Green Guide 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 color 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction 16 April 2007
I bought this as a present for my mum, who wanted to reignite her knowledge of the trees and wild flowers of Britain. As an introduction to the trees of Britain and Europe, this small book was excellent.

The introduction to the book includes information about the families of trees which you will find within the pages of the book. Each tree that is included has half a page dedicated to it. This includes colour illustrations (which are beautifully done) of the overall apperance of the tree, a close-up of the leaves and often a detail of the bark. The written information next to the illustrations is insightful, detailing how tall the tree grows, where it is found plus the Latin name, etc.

Having looked through this book myself, what I most like about it is that you do not need to have a wealth of knowledge about trees already; just the opposite really. And, because of it's size, it is handy to carry around with you as you go for those long walks in the forest.

Lovely little pocket sized book to take out and about. It seems to have all I need in it for walks etc. The illustrations are clear and I am able to identify trees using it without any trouble. Good value for money

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good guide at a good price 9 Jun 2011
By Mini-me
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Starting to sound like a broken record now (!) I chose this book after reading what others had to say and am very pleased with my choice - complete opposite of it's companion book about mushrooms & fungii ....
This doesn't have photos of trees but does have good quality colour illustrations - I particularly like the seeds/flowers/fruit feature for every tree/shrub - my only niggle is not having an outline of what a particular deciduous tree looks like in the winter but apart from that I'm very pleased with my purchase.
I would happily recommend this to others looking for a cheap and pocket-sized guide to trees.
