What do you want to know about trees? I'm currently reading Trees: Their Natural History. Very interesting, starts off in plain language and covers lots of useful information.

I want to be able to identify them and know which trees are best for which areas. That's the basics of what i want to know but really i want to know everything i can. Ive bought a book (not the collins one....), also downloaded an app, British tree identification guide, which seems quite good. They also do a winter tree guide, mushroom guide and wild flower guide which i bought as a bundle and all seem pretty good.
