I love myself a tree now and again, but I wouldn't classify myself as a dendrophiliac. I enjoy trees enough to make flipping through this book a real pleasure.

National Audubon's series on North American wildlife and nature is a great resource for enthusiasts. Within, the reader will find hundreds of color photos with close-ups on bark and leaf. There are sketches and diagrams. Maps for every tree show its habitation range. Descriptions come with average sizes, soil preference, as well as detail

A very good book that includes quite a few transplants, hybrids & invasives. Definitely one of the best buys of this type out there. I have a couple of copies & have used them extensively in Maryland & Kentucky. While a few trees have not been included, overall it has met expectations.
Cassandra Kay Silva
The way this book is laid out makes identifying trees fairly easy. Especially as it is regionally specific. I think reading through the book at least once through before using it makes it so much more simple to use. Books like this make me wish I were a botanist.
Tanner Scott
This is the only non-fiction book I've read cover to cover. This was my nature book for years of research in the woods. I love this book! 5 stars isn't enough.

National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees: Eastern Region by Elbert L. Little, (Alfred A. Knopf 1980)(582) is the Audubon Society's field guide to North American trees. My rating: 7/10, finished 2005.
Carrie
Although I've read most of this - I'm constantly referring to this guide. A nice one - I've keyed out most of the trees in my backyard with this book. Not a must-read, but helpful nonetheless.
Rick
This book is part of my desire to learn more about life around me. For instance, the most popular tree found in New York City is the London Planetree.
Kayla
This guide was easy to read and to look up tree species. Great for anyone learning about Botany, Ecology, or likes to learn more about the outdoors.
