A guide for anyone wanting to identify those deciduous and evergreen species they may come across on hill or in dale, in the town or in the countryside. Each tree entry includes: illustrations of shape, leaf, cone and flower, as appropriate; and a description giving details of height, geographical distribution, bark and flowering period. The introduction covers the life cycle of trees, the establishment of woodland, man's relationship with woodland, and how to go about identifying different species, plus the all-important question - What exactly is a tree?
