It's also a very well written and enjoyable read and completely accessible for a newbie tree lover.
I'm going to edit my tree trail now thanks to this fabulous book, thank you.... and if you read to the very end then ''ha, you have caught the bug'' as the author might say.
who loves trees, might buy one for myself at a later date, or as a gift for my
granddaughter. The quality of this book is first class, and the illustrations are brilliant.
