Description

Experience the joy of discovering the natural world around you with this beautiful pocket guide to British trees, an inspiration and treat designed to enthral all nature lovers.

Paul Sterry has written and illustrated more than 50 books, including the bestselling Collins Complete Guide to British Birds and Collins Complete Guide to British Trees. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. Goods will normally be received within 10 days, but please allow up to 30 days in case we are exceptionally busy or if there are other circumstances beyond our control. Excellent book - well written - good quality paper - good quality photos and lots of them- the writing is not so small and I can read perfectly - one of the best tree reference books I have seen so far.

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. We hope you will be delighted with every purchase, but if not, we will offer you a replacement or a full refund - whatever the reason. Over 1500 trees of Britain and Northern Europe described, with pictures of the whole tree, flowers, leaves and twigs. Although not as comprehensive as the other Collins tree guide, it's a handier size and I find it easier to ID from photographs than from drawings, so the two books go well together.

The introduction contains illustrations which also provide the starting point for identification by leading you to a ‘key’ species. I maintain a blog that charts the weekly progress of the small woodland and ecological park next to my home. It might not be the most informative, in-depth or well-organised tree identification guide out there, but I find it pretty good.

The build is excellent, the pages are glossy, the photography is top quality and it simply yells professionalism.

Sample identification "Silver Birch Betula pendula (Betulaceae) height to 26m A slender, fast-growing deciduous tree with a narrow, tapering crown when young and growing vigorously. Every species is also comprehensively illustrated with photographs of every useful feature bark, leaf, seed, flower, twig and whole tree.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. There is no key at the begining so it makes it difficult to accuratly identify the tree your looking at, but the pictures and descriptions and measurments are very accurate, providing you can recognise the family the tree is from. These are not the same for all trees, because one feature may be more distinctive on one than another. Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab . On pages 64-65 there is a "Places to Visit" list, with web addresses, listing natural woodlands and arboreta that the enthusiast might like to visit.

I've been doing well with birds, insects and flowers but have floundered hopelessly when trying to identify trees and shrubs. Purchased this as a Christmas Present for my Daughter-in-Law, she loves it, spent most of Boxing Day reading it! We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.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.
