Nearly 700 species of trees are detailed in beautiful, full-color photographs of leaf shape, bark, flowers, fruit, and fall leaves, and accompanied by informative text. Both compact and comprehensive, and featuring a durable vinyl binding, this is the ideal field companion for beginner and advanced tree-peepers alike.
Note: the Eastern Edition usually covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, even as the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all of the states to the west of it.
More than 300 species of trees are found in america and Canada west of the Rocky Mountains, some introduced from other continents but many native to the region. This handsome guidebook covers them all, with photographs that enable identification by easily discernible characteristics: by, for example, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, or by the flower or cone. The photographs are linked to texts that describe a tree’s physical characteristics, habitat, and range. One of the vital trees covered in this volume are exceedingly rare, such as the Monterey pine; others are in the community abundant but limited in range, such as the Joshua tree; still others, such as the quaking aspen, are widespread. This guidebook is an essential addition to any western out of doors enthusiast’s collection. –Gregory McNamee
