About this deal

The introduction contains illustrations of the main leaves, buds, and firs you are likely to find, which also provide the starting point for identification by leading you to a 'key' species. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. Paul Sterry is author of Complete British Wildlife, which has sold over half a million copies, as well as numerous other titles in the successful Collins Complete Photoguide series, including Complete British Birds and Complete British Wild Flowers. Includes sections on trees and woodlands, history of woodland management and conservation and threats to British woodland.

Individual species are then thoroughly described and a detailed illustration features on the same page.

Every species is illustrated with photographs of leaves, fruits, twigs and bark for easy identification. Throughout this rich heritage we have maintained an impressive record in creating market-leading products across various sectors. Each species is covered in detail with information on how to identify, whether from a leaf, twig, bark or whole tree, plus extra information on where the tree grows (including a map), how high they grow, what uses the tree is used for and its unique history.

I would argue a lot of these didn't need to be in the book as they weren't British trees you would be likely to come across at all but interesting all the same. Covering all species commonly found outside major arboretums, a combination of truly stunning illustrations and easy-to-read text allow for fast and accurate identification.
