Synopsis About this title All-season field guide for identifying common trees of eastern NA This popular, field-tested guide for identifying trees in any season, not just when they are in full leaf, features color photos and line drawings showing bark, branching patterns, fruits, flowers, nuts, and overall appearance in addition to leaf color and shape. Here the photos are big, in color, and often of different trees to really bring out the crucial details in bark appearance and texture. For the amateur botanist in winter it might be a very fun challenge.
The text often has some interesting tidbits about the species being described on that page, such as past and present usages for the woods, nuts, oils, etc from the tree, wildlife uses, use of the tree as an ornamental, etc. There is a lot to be said about a field guide to well, anything, with a regional focus. Though there can always be something found from outside the region it is native to and those living in border areas might disagree, I think there is a lot to be said for a book focusing on EASTERN trees. Absolutely nothing against western trees of course, but a book focusing only on those found in the eastern United States allowed more space I think to be devoted to the species one is likely to encounter in that part of the country and remove from consideration very unlikely species.
A few introduced trees were included, something I liked, species such as Paulownia, Ginkgo, Chinaberry, and Ailanthus, trees an amateur is very likely to come across and but given short shrift by some field guides. Baldcypress and Pondcypress get separate pages — not always the case in many field guides — and I really liked that. This book had by far the best information and photos of Striped Maple — Acer pensylvanicum — of any book I have ever seen.
A Guide for North American Hardwood Tree Identification
Hackberry and Sugarberry were both given separate pages, one after the other; very helpful as the two can be hard to distinguish from one another the same is true for its treatment of Northern Catalpa and Southern Catalpa, two other challenging species at times to differentiate. The coverage of oaks was fantastic. I love the book and highly value it. Oct 02, Phil Greaney rated it it was amazing.
An excellent book, very nicely done - clearly organised, well illustrated, succinct and direct. I've identified several trees on my patch with this book. It feels a bit wonky at times - trees don't appear where I think they might - but I'm willing to believe that is me. We have plenty of sassafras, which I found difficult to identify at first but looking now, it is obvious.
Leaf id apps couldn't identify it - too generic, I think. The same with several red cherry trees I have - this An excellent book, very nicely done - clearly organised, well illustrated, succinct and direct. The same with several red cherry trees I have - this book confirmed their identity, most through their textured bark.
You'll need this book, some trees and some summer - a bit more difficult, although not impossible, without leaves! For me, it has been invaluable, since it's the basis for an inventory for trees on my property.

Helpful with preparing to teach elementary school children about trees this fall. One thing that brought me up short was the description of one tree found in all the eastern states except Minnesota. Assuming the Rocky Mountains are the dividing line that makes sense, but living in CT I don't think of Minnesota as an eastern state Useful tool for identifying trees by leaves, bark, growth patterns, and location.

Petty concern but jarring to me.
Nov 29, Andy rated it really liked it. Informative and pretty dense. A useful book for those looking to identify the trees they encounter. I never realized how many different trees grow in the eastern U.

Aug 28, Tammy rated it it was amazing. I picked this up at the library for my husband. We both really liked the very detailed pictures of the trees, bark, leaves, nuts etc.
He said he wouldn't mind owning this book. Soooo, I will put that on his Christmas list this year.
