Britain and Ireland are blessed in their trees. Centuries of introductions, from the Romans to to the great collectors travelling in Asia, Africa and the Americas, have enriched our restricted native tree-flora. Now, thanks to a maritime climate with moderate rainfall and mild winters, more trees grow here, and better, than almost anywhere else in the temperate world. David More and John White offer an unparalleled and illustrated record of our these trees - and their magnificent variety - at the start of the new century. This is the most complete tree book available in English or any other language. The book has been more than twelve years in the making - two years of research, followed by ten years of meticulous painting of trees, bark, leaves and fruits. It describes and illustrates more than 1,000 species and varieties of trees, which we can see in Britain, Ireland and Northern Europe.
In excellent used condition.
