Not as good as Collins Bird Guide. I find myself searching for certain details in other resources. Twigs with buds are NOT drawn for many species. Bark drawings are somewhat hard to correlate to real bark. There is a very useful visual leaf index where one can quickly find the tree family just by leaf silhouette. Descriptions are good with a bit too much British-centrism for a book that advertises to cover northern Europe.

This books had more accurate and more reliable descriptions about each trees species than other books on this subject.

A very useful identification guide, the desciptions can be used by both amateurs and professionals and the image plates clear and easy to use, I particularly like the leaf guide at the front of the book which provides a quick reference guide when in the field. Although a bulky for field use it is useful to have and makes tree id much easier than some other guides I've looked at.
