This new edition of a very significant book which has been used by gardeners, naturalists, nurserymen, farmers, foresters and conservationists, countrywide, features seven additional tree species and a more accessible arrangement of the trees according to their botanical names. More than 140 trees are discussed in detail providing information on diagnostic features, flowering and fruiting periods, natural distribution and habitat; the trees ecological role - utilization by mammals, birds and insects; use by people including use in the garden and as a source of food for humans and animals; amongst other aspects.
