5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent - by far my favourite book about trees, 2 Sep 2007
This review is from: Cassell's Trees of Britain and Northern Europe (Hardcover)
This is easily my favourite tree guide and can be purchased with Cassell's parallel Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe for just over 50 (and less than that elsewhere). Extraordinary value for two magical books. Both are monster publications with fabulous illustrations (although naturalists looking for anything portable should turn to Collins superb Tree Guide instead. (For wild flower guides, see my review of Cassell's Wild Flowers).

One of the charms of this guide is the consistency of presentation and the personal approach to trees, advising on their hardiness and often on their suitability for gardens etc. This makes it the ideal choice if you are lucky enough to have a garden in need of trees - I used it to select Betula pendula var. Dalecarlica, broad-leaved cockspur thorn and three other trees for our comparatively small garden (15m deep by about 25m wide).

Enjoy this book - it's a real celebration of the growing architects of our living space.
