The Easy Tree Guide - Common Native and Cultivated Trees of the United States and Canada (Paperback): Keith Rushforth The Easy Tree Guide - Common Native and Cultivated Trees of the United States and Canada (Paperback)
Keith Rushforth; Illustrated by Gill Tomblin, Ann Winterbotham
R410 R349 Discovery Miles 3 490 Save R61 (15%) Out of stock

A handy, portable, and comprehensive aid to swift and accurate identification in the field, this easy-to-use guide devotes an entire spread to each species. A color photograph of a tree or group of trees (plus a close-up of the bark) on the right-hand page show what the species looks like in its natural context. On the facing page, superbly detailed paintings illustrate foliage, blossom, and fruit, with notes on key characteristics that assist identification, and a scaled silhouette to give an indication of size. The accompanying text outlines the species' salient features, describes its range and habitat, and details its commercial or decorative uses.
The book covers 170 species, both indigenous to the United States and others that have been introduced, either for commercial forestry or for the decorative value of their flowers and foliage in gardens and parks. Many of these latter species have now "gone native" and are commonly found in woods and hedges alongside the native trees.

National Geographic Field Guide to the Trees of North America - The Essential Identification Guide for Novice and Expert... National Geographic Field Guide to the Trees of North America - The Essential Identification Guide for Novice and Expert (Paperback, Annotated edition)

Ideal for backpacks and back pockets alike, this indispensable reference makes it easy to identify any tree commonly encountered between the Canadian Arctic and Mexico and from the Atlantic to the Pacific--more than 350 species in all. It's a natural for birders, hikers, and other outdoorsy types, but even confirmed urbanites will find plenty of information on city trees as well.
Concise yet comprehensive, the book's clear, methodical approach enables anyone to recognize trees at a glance. Developed in consultation with botanists from The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Cornell University's renowned Bailey Hortorium, it separates species into two fundamental types: conifers and broad-leaved, then organizes them into genera based on common characteristics, presenting each in its presumed order of evolution. Major differences between species groups are explained, with advice on which parts of a tree to examine when a closer look is required.
More than 1,000 annotated illustrations depict the height, shape, foliage, buds and seed of each species, with trees bearing a strong resemblance shown side by side to highlight their distinctive differences. The accompanying text and system of symbols provide the important details on features and habitat essential to quick, reliable identifications, while graphical keys indicate genus and species, listing both scientific and common names. The guide also includes a map charting tree hardiness and distribution based on widely recognized climactic zones; general information about individual species traits and history, a glossary; and more.
