Authoritative text, clear photography and systematic approach make the DK Handbook Trees the most comprehensive guide to a wide range of species from around the world. Packed with over 1,000 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.

Photo-Encyclopedic Approach
For beginners and established enthusiasts alike, the DK Handbook 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 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.

  • Packed with over 1,500 crystal-clear photographs and illustrations with precise annotation to make identification sure and simple
