I purchased my copy of this book two years ago to look after 185 Christmas Trees ,I took over the care of this book has been a brilliant help and I do not know what I would have done without the clear instructions for the care of varied species of Christmas trees .
The only criticism is that the photos would be better in colour and give the prospective Christmas tree grower a better understanding of what to look for in tree growth etc.
This is the only improvement to an already informative and excellent book.
Five stars would have been achived if the photo information was in colour.
