Manufacturer Description

The most comprehensive guidebook available to the trees of North America's eastern region-- a must-have for any lover's day pack or house library-- from the go-to referral source for over 18 million nature lovers.Nearly 700 species of trees are detailed in beautiful, full-color pictures of leaf shape, bark, flowers, fruit, and fall leaves, and accompanied by helpful text. Both compact and comprehensive, this is the perfect companion for beginner and advanced tree-peepers alike. Note: the Eastern Edition normally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain variety and all the states to the west of it.For the inexperienced observer, it can be rather a challenge to figure out the many trees that comprise a stand of older forest in, state, New England or the Ozarks. This well-illustrated guidebook, covering 364 species, comes to the rescue with pictures arranged in a number of methods: by, for instance, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, by the flower or cone, and by autumn coloration. Following one visible characteristic or another, the reader can narrow the range of possibilities, then turn to an useful text that describes a tree's physical attributes, environment, and variety. Many of the species covered are fairly unusual, such as the "stinking cedar" of the Georgia-Florida border; others are locally abundant, such as the paper birch of the boreal forest, utilized to make ice-cream sticks; still others, such as the smooth sumac, are extensive. The guidebook likewise covers ornamentals introduced from other continents, such as the Chinese privet and Mahaleb cherry.-- Gregory McNamee
