Trees are our largest and most conspicuous plants, a dominant part of nearly any landscape. Learning to identify trees will not only add to your appreciation of the American countryside, but will also serve as a good introduction to other aspects of nature, since trees usually have a great influence on the kind of birds, wildflowers, mammals, and other wildlife in the area.
This new guide covers 80 of the most common and frequently encountered tree species in the West. This easy-to-use guide is divided into three parts: introductory essays; illustrated accounts of the trees; and appendices.
