Hailed as "the most complete tree book available", Cassell's Trees of Britain and Northern Europe
is the ultimate guide for students, enthusiasts and huggers of the world's trees. At a hefty 800 pages, it's a bit large to use as a field guide but anyone with an interest in trees will find this book an invaluable resource and a joy to read.
David Moore has spent 12 years painting the thousands of beautiful and fastidiously executed illustrations that identify the 1,000 species described, and his pictures have a life and vibrancy that few botanical artists can match. He also exhibits an almost fanatical eye for detail: note the large variety of different animals used to give scale to the trees. Flesh, in the form of textual information, is put on the bones by eminent dendrologist John White, who does a fine job. But it's the trees, in the form of Moore's superb paintings, that are the stars of this book.
With every tree you could possibly wish to identify faithfully represented and catalogued, along with immaculate paintings of bark, leaves and fruit, Cassell's Trees of Britain and Northern Europe is not merely an excellent reference guide, but a beautiful coffee-table book and without doubt the new tree-spotter's bible. --Duncan Thomson
