9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Valerie Fletcher Adolph on March 19, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is a tree-lovers delight. It has but four chapters. The first three are short, one each on the diversity of bark, the structure of bark (with black and white illustrations), and the ethnobotany of bark. These three take up about 50 pages and are concise and informative.
Chapter Four is about 200 pages in length and it comprises over 550 color photographs of bark taken mostly in Europe, North America and Australia. These are the devoted work of an enthusiast, pictures taken over many years of carefully chosen specimens. First published in Europe about a decade ago, this is the first North American presentation of a respected and well-loved book.
I'm a tree person myself and I've always enjoyed lookingat the many variations of color and texture in trees of various species and ages. But this book really opened my eyes and helped me to notice and appreciate patterns and shadings I might never have noticed.
Thank you, Timber Press, for bringing this book to North America.

Format: Hardcover
If you love trees, this book will provide a unique perspective -- on bark. The wonderful photographs highlight the wide variety of tree bark types and patterns. And it features some barks that are extraordinary. Whether you are landscaping a lot or want another way to identify trees as you walk through the woods, I am sure you find this book fascinating. It helped me find some new trees that I want to plant in my yard. Now, I just have to find a nursery that carries them.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By P. van Rijckevorsel on August 9, 2003
Format: Hardcover
The Timber Press has been publishing gardening books for quite a few years now and appears quite devoted to turning out good-looking books. This striving for perfection is not limited to looks only but includes content: the Timber Press is perhaps the only publishing company to get the "hybrid sign" right (i.e. following the ICBN). In this book they also follow recent developments in taxonomy as concerns recent reassignments as to family.
It is clear that this devoted publishing company found an author devoted to making good-looking photographs and the result is a stunning book, that will be treasured by anyone who cares about trees. It is as close to a real life viewing of the trees as I ever experienced.
This book will look superb on a coffee table or on a reference shelf. It will make a great gift to just about anybody. Let's hope this splendid overview of a neglected aspect of trees is not an incident but a promise of many other beautiful books to come.

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Wordsmith on January 11, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I am not sure what I was expecting with this book, but I was expecting infinitely more than it delivered. It ranges from simplistic to numbingly technical. It essentially tells one that bark is so dependent upon the circumstances in which a tree finds itself, that bark cannot be reliably described with a set of characteristics that might lead to an identifying standard for each sort of tree. And then it poses an admittedly arbitrary system for such desription and classification.

Ok, the photography is quite good. But really, you can better spend your botany library dollars elsewhere.
