Review :

Winner of the Media Award, National Arbor Day Foundation

"The very best book I can imagine for identifying trees."--Seattle Times

"Extraordinary. . . . [U]nmatched by anything on the market today."--Fine Gardening

"The beautiful illustrations and informative text make it a perfect source."--Booklist

"The power of the book is the beauty and accuracy of its illustrations."--Choice

"Because of the meticulous detail, all tree lovers will find this a necessary encyclopedic book."--National Gardener

"This beautiful work is notable for its illustrations. . . . Revisions and updates of genus and species are included in this edition. . . . Recommended for all libraries."--Linda Scarth, Booklist

"Recommended for libraries serving gardeners and readers who are interested in identifying trees on their land. Also for those readers interested in how many of the hybrid trees in this volume were created, where the trees originated, and how they came to the British Isles and America."--Library Journal

"David More spent over a decade painting these illustrations from real specimens, and fellow tree expert John White's informative text describes key facts about each. The result is an extraordinary reference that will continue to be prized by nature enthusiasts, gardeners, landscapers, and foresters."--Northeastern Naturalist

"This book is beautifully illustrated and exceptionally meticulous in details. If you are like me and enjoy being able to identify the trees you see on a hike through the woods or a walk through a garden, this book should be in your library."--RK, Wildlife Activist

"I recommend this book for any tree lover, especially one who hankers to roam, tree by tree, across the northern temperate world. If you took the time to gaze each day at one of its pages, you would have a handy substitute for getting out of doors to look at live trees. If you are plotting your own arboretum, or just to plant a new tree in your yard or garden, this book will help you too."--Bev Mcbride, Canadian Field Naturalist

"If David More and John White were committed to creating one of the most comprehensive tree identification books available, then they certainly have achieved their goal."--Tchukki Andersen, Tree Care Industry
