Publisher Comments:


How can you distinguish a Noble fir from a Grand fir? Or a Quaking Aspen from a Sitka Alder? Stephen Arno and Ramona Hammerly will show you how in their classic guide to identifying and appreciating Northwest trees. Arno and Hammerly have been studying and roaming Northwest's forest for nearly 50 years and no other guide on the market duplicates their blend of expertise and visual artistry. Covering Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and north into Canada, they help identify and illustrate over 60 species of wild Northwestern trees by characteristic shape, size, needles or leaves, and cones or seeds.
  • Provides easy to use illustrated identification key based on the most reliable and non-technical features of each species
  • Features the latest knowledge on the ecology and human history associated with all Northwest trees
  • Over 250 species exceptionally accurate drawings and historical photos bring these ancient trees to life

Book News Annotation:

Thirty years after the original 1977 edition, this anniversary edition presents an updated and expanded version of this fascinating guide. The text, which is written for the general reader, discusses over 60 trees, in entries that describe the tree's history, habitat, appearance, ecological role, and human history. The book is well illustrated with fine drawings of the full-grown tree, its cones, leaves, and/or needles, as well as many b&w historical photos. Arno is a forest ecologist with the USDA Forest Service. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
