Cassell's Trees of Britain and Northern Europe by John White
5 of 6 people found the following review helpful
My standard tree book by the late Alan Mitchell has been a constant companion for nearly thirty years but it was getting a little out of date. The book by More and White is a worthy successor. The illustrations of More are truely fantastic and cover leaves, flowers, fruit, bark as well as the complete tree. Special cultivars are also covered. The text by White gets a perfect balance between precision and common language. Technical terms are kept to a minimum.

The only adverse criticism is that it is too big for my pocket! It is not a pocket field guide and so the Mitchell book will still get used. They complement each other perfectly.
