Description


A diverse array of native coniferous and deciduous trees and, in some places, naturalized exotics comprises majestic northeastern forests and woodlands. Naturalists of all ages and abilities will celebrate the publication of Native and Naturalized Trees of New England and Adjacent Canada: A Field Guide. This authoritative guide offers taxonomy, range, detailed notes on botanical features (leaves, buds, bark, twigs, flowers, and fruit), and a general description for each of eighty-two species of forest trees and twenty common shrubs found in the region. Identification is simplified: trees are grouped by leaf shape and arrangement and are keyed to symbols in the text. The authors supplement these comprehensive entries with a wealth of further information on species' habitats, associated trees, shrubs, and flowering plants, historical details, wildlife values, and uses. Line drawings accompany each entry, and distribution maps are provided for all native species. The book includes an instructive glossary, a list of references, and a metric rule on the inside back cover that will facilitate identification of trees. Native and Naturalized Trees of New England and Adjacent Canada is destined to become a classic field guide on northeastern forest trees.
