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.
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.
