The cover and some of the illustrations got me hooked on this book and I bought it without reading the reviews. It is a simple book and quite helpful, but no patch on the Secret Life of Trees. I really wanted to like this, but the style of the narrator I found annoying and childlike, what I thought would be an easy read became rather tedious and I had to force myself to finish it. It would get 2.5 stars, but halfs are not allowed so I have been generous and rounded up to three.
There are better books on trees out there both in respect of technical information and basicaly just more interesting.
Money is better spent elsewhere perhaps.
