Book News Annotation:
Is that a silver wattle or a sourwood? Using the text, photographs, and illustrations in this book, you can identify 180 trees in the parks, woods, backyards, and streets of North America. Beginning with features that identify trees, such as shots and buds, leaves, needles, cones and flowers, the book shows how trees look in cultivated and native settings. Divided into separate sections for broadleaf and conifer trees, each entry gives trees' primary and alternate names, their history and uses, height, and close-up views of their leaves or needles, flowers, and bark. Especially helpful are the large photographs of full trees in cultivated and natural settings.
