Pity this excellent book is out of print. I have a much-treasured copy that proved a life-saver when studying for horticulture exams (and I have many books on trees). The book is beautifully printed and the colours true, while the editorial is brief and to the point.
Makes tree identification a cinch!

Excellent, if not very portable in the field (it's a sizeable book even in paperback). Clear photographs of leaves etc in the first section, then the full listings which comprise an outline of the tree shape, photos of leaves and fruit, occasionally bark instead, and a written description.

Within 5 minutes, I identified two trees which I hadn't found in other guides. Very highly recommended!

I have had this book for years and find it really easy to use. The photographs are excellent and have enabled me to identify many trees inBritain and also in France, where I now live in the Pyrenees. I have recently bought a second hand copy from Amazon for my son who is a wildlife photgrapher and cameraman- he is very impressed with the scope and detail of this book

The drawings, information and photos are excellent. I bought it after 'Cassell's Trees in Britain and Northern Europe' both are superb and complement each other (with some overlap). If you only buy one this is the first one I would choose - not too heavy to carry!

The name Roger Phillips will already be familiar to botanical enthusiasts around the world. If you have an interest in the plants that surround you, a Roger Phillips book may already adorn your bookshelf. If not, then endeavour to get one soon. A good place to start is his "Trees in Britain, Europe and North America" by Pan Books. Phillips keeps to his style and layout of his previous best-seller on Wildflowers. Plant specimens are clearly photographed on a neutral background, and every specimen you are likely to see is captured in numerous ways. Pictures of leaves, bark, fruit and overall silhouettes make identification easy - even for the novice.

This is a great book to maybe have alongside a smaller field guide though I'm happy to carry this one around with me too. Ideal for someone with a lot of interest who may lack a botanist's approach to looking at plants, just like me.

Another good , comprehensive , volume by Roger Phillips . Being a Civil Engineer , I have an interest in trees and their effects upon buildings . So , knowing the species you are dealing with and to what size it can attain is very useful . The book is very well illustrated with coloured photographs and line drawings making it easy to identify trees .
I recommend this book to naturalists through to Engineers .
