What I like about this tree guide: the page layouts, the photos, and the illustrations. (Every tree has a color drawing of a man figure standing next to a tree which is half-leaved, half barren, to show scale and branch structure.)

What's irritating: Some trees are identified by their common English and their Latin names, others only by their Latin names. The table of contents uses solely Latin (how does this help the average person??), as does the Identification Key. The index uses both English
This is a great little book for tree identification. The pictures are photographs as opposed to illustrations which is something that works well for me. It would be more helpful if it included more pictures of bark however.
