Divided by leaf type, this guide features illustrations of the trees commonly found in parks, gardens and woodland, together with the "lookalike" species with which they are often confused. Also shown are illustrations of flowers and bark, and histograms giving the months in which the tress can be expected to be in leaf, flower and fruit. A comprehensive introduction features information on how trees are classified, the anatomy of trees, reproduction and hybridization, the use of different timbers, trees in folklore, literature and medicine and woodland ecology.
