Trees by Allen J. Coombes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Authoritative text, clear photography and systematic approach make the "Dorling Kindersley Handbook of Trees" the most comprehensive guide to a wide range of species from around the world. Packed with over 1000 full-colour photographs of more than 500 trees, it is designed to cut through the complicated identification process to enable you to recognize a species instantly. It features a photo-encyclopedic approach. For beginners and established enthusiasts alike the "Dorling Kindersley Handbook of Trees" explains what a tree is, how trees are classified and how to keep a record of trees you have seen. To help you in the initial stages of identification, the book provides a visual key that shows you the differences between conifers, broadleaves and palms; identifies each genus by leaf type; and, guides you to the correct species entry. A concise glossary defines technical and scientific terms. Identification is made easy. Expertly written and thoroughly authenticated each species entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight the tree's chief characteristics and distinguishing features. A full-colour illustration showing the spread, height and leaf persistence of the species as well as colour-coded bands providing at-a-glance facts for quick reference completes every entry.
