What kinds of tree grow where, how long do they live, and how big do they become? This book answers all these questions and more, introducing the finest examples of every kind of tree growing in the British Isles, from ancient yews and towering sequoias to the rarest of recent introductions. It draws together thousands of statistics amassed over the last decade by hundreds of recorders that contribute information to the Tree Register - providing definitive information on trees in Britain in Ireland. Over 5,000 trees are described in this new book, 60% of which are newly discovered or re-recorded since the first publication of the Tree Register in 2003.
Part one of the book comprises a tree flora listing of all species alphabetically by botanical name. Part two is a guide to visiting Britain and Ireland's finest specimens, listing trees by geographical region and county. A checklist of all native trees is also included as are indexes of synonyms and common names, counties, parishes and many gardens.
This book is indispensible, both as a handy resource for the professional, and as an inspiring, wide-ranging guide to our largest and most spectacular of life forms - packed with personal insights, local knowledge, and photographs of individual trees.
