A beautifully illustrated 460 page book featuring detailed paintings and illustrations for over 600 North American tree species, arranged by taxonomical family and featuring flowers, leaves, seeds, buds and bark. However, lacking easy, at-a-glance identification aids, this book, while stunning, is definitely not suitable for beginners as an on-the-trail field guide.

A sturdy, thoughtfully designed 528 page book featuring detailed photographs of over 700 native, naturalised and ornamental North American tree species, arranged by taxonomical family. Identifying photographs for each tree are conviniently laid per open page to avoid turning over and are accompanied by detailed descriptions and demographic maps.
