Book Overview

From the creators of the world's most trusted field guides--a go-to source for millions of nature lovers--comes a completely new and unparalleled reference work: the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date guide to the trees of North America.

This handsome volume is the result of a collaboration among leading scientists, scholars, taxonomic and field experts, photo editors, and designers. An indispensable reference, it covers more than 540 species, with nearly 2,500 full-color photographs--including images of the bark, fruit, and flowers, as well as photos that illustrate leaf shape and seasonal color changes. For ease of use, the book includes a glossary, a robust index, and a ribbon marker, and is arranged according to the latest Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification system--with trees sorted by taxonomic orders and grouped by family, so that related species are presented together. Readers will appreciate the crisp detail of the photographs; range maps (reflecting the impact of climate change); physical descriptions; and information on fruit, habitat, uses, and similar species. The guide includes an important new category on conservation status and essays by leading scholars who provide holistic insights into the world of trees. Whether putting a name to the towering conifers spotted along a hike or getting to know the trees that grow in the backyard, readers will come to rely on this work of remarkable breadth, depth, and elegance. It is a must-have reference for the library of any nature lover, and is poised to become the number one guide in the field.

   Awesome details with great photos and descriptions.
I'm partial to the first book. I really like the "page-finder" ribbon that is used for a quick return to my previous page.
   Best layperson's identification and learning guide for trees in the US
This is probably the best new Tree ID guide for people wanting to learn about trees in the US. It provides some lore and a conservation status as well as photos and descriptions of the plant's appearance that are useful to understand the plant's biology. Each tree has a clear and organized header and footer, making it easy to read. There is a very good introductory section at the beginning on the natural history and biology of trees that is great for beginners, he said. If you live in the Eastern US and do not wish to see information on Western trees, I recommend a similar recent guide, Identifying Trees of the East by Michael D. Williams.

The book is very good, but I was disappointed with the cover. To try to identify a tree by looking through a leaf is beyond impossible. There are no pictures of the three fallen oaks, Tunick said. It's great to see the Audubon Society's work recognized. Only a cursory search of the Web site would yield such a reference.
Giving it 3 stars is pretty impressive. Yes, it has lots of trees. What would it take to refine or figure out what you were looking at? Thanks for the pictures, Douglas. The other two are off by a few ranges. The quality of the service was poor, and the price was not consistent with other tree species.
