Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Simon & Schuster's Guide to Trees is the most useful book any gardener and tree enthusiast can own — a field guide for beginners and experts alike. The 300 entries cover conifers, palms, broadleafs, fruits, flowering trees, and trees of economic importance.

Each entry supplies the botanical name with its etymology, the common name, and the family name of the tree, along with a full description of size, color, shape, leaves, flowers, fruit, and seeds. Concise information is given on habitat, propagation, and conditions for growth. Also included are a detailed introduction with valuable background information, a hardiness zone map for North America, a glossary, and an index for easy reference.

Whether you are interested in identifying the Staghorn sumac or in growing the tallest redwood, this handsome, comprehensive, and authoritative guide tells you everything you need to know about the wonderful and majestic world of trees.

Synopsis:

Trees is divided into 3 main sections: "Discovering Trees" includes background information on evolution, biology, anatomy and environment; "Observing Trees" provides practical advice on leaf collecting, bark rubbing and how to select and plant trees; "Guide to Trees" lists an extensive guide to the 160 most common conifer and broadleaf tree species in the world.
