Handbook of Trees

by Allen Coombes

The clearest, most comprehensive illustrated pocket guide to trees from around the world

Suitable for beginners and established enthusiasts alike, DK Handbook: Trees explains what a tree is, how trees are classified, and how to keep a record of the trees you have seen. DK Handbooks: Trees uses authoritative text, clear photography, and a systematic approach to make identifying trees quick and simple. Packed with over 1,000 full-colour photographs of more than 500 trees this book cuts through the complicated identification process to enable you to recognize a species instantly.

To help in the initial stages of identification, the book provides a visual key that shows the differences between conifers, broadleaves, and palms, identifies each genus by leaf type, and guides you to the correct species entry. Every entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight the tree's chief characteristics and distinguishing features, and a full-colour illustration showing the spread, height, and leaf persistence of the species. A concise glossary defines technical and scientific terms. Compact enough to take out into the field or forest, DK Handbooks: Trees makes identifying nature's giants easier than ever before.
