A excellent place to start for identifying trees
on 23 September 1999
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.
