    Yup - agreed. I used mine yesterday to identify a Spindle tree, so called as the wood was used to make the spindles onto which wool was spun.

    Collins books are about the most informative. I received 3 of them on Birds, Fungi, & Trees 2013.

    hello,
    Toney something I found of interest. Our Countryside/Woodland Trust & Forestry Commission keep a record of what trees are officially planted plus location. I sometime ask them for A4 print outs of locations as to I.D trees. In the local area a number of non native species were planted gifted to the area & curious as to what actually was planted. Details were readily available.
    Regards
    David
