Description

Product Description

The most comprehensive field guide available to the trees of North America''s western region--a must-have for any enthusiast''s day pack or home library--from the go-to reference source for over 18 million nature lovers.

Nearly 700 species of trees are detailed in beautiful, full-color photographs of leaf shape, bark, flowers, fruit, and fall leaves, and accompanied by informative text. Both compact and comprehensive, and featuring a durable vinyl binding, this is the ideal field companion for beginner and advanced tree-peepers alike. 

Note: the Eastern Edition generally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it.

Amazon.com

More than 300 species of trees are found in the United States and Canada west of the Rocky Mountains, some introduced from other continents but many native to the region. This handsome guidebook covers them all, with photographs that enable identification by easily discernible characteristics: by, for example, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, or by the flower or cone. The photographs are linked to texts that describe a tree''s physical characteristics, habitat, and range. Some of the trees covered in this volume are exceedingly rare, such as the Monterey pine; others are locally abundant but limited in range, such as the Joshua tree; still others, such as the quaking aspen, are widespread. This guidebook is an essential addition to any western outdoor enthusiast''s collection. --Gregory McNamee

This is a very comprehensive and technical book. That being said, it''s not a book where you can see a tree, open a page, and find it quickly. It''s a very technical book and uses the actual species names so identifying a tree for the normal everyday non-scientific person is a bit of a challenge and the pictures of the full trees are tiny black and white sketches. Not helpful! there are pages of colored photos of leaves and bark, but not of the full tree! I''m going to keep the book because it does have a lot of information, but I am looking for a more simplified book for just Northern California or at least the West Coast.

I am an arborist and this is the book I use to ID trees. I have both the Eastern and Western region books. If it ain''t in these two book, then it''s a hybrid, or non-native, or something really odd. I am a member of an arborist forum, and I can ID just about anything anyone throws out there, and am almost always right the first time. In fact, I get some right that even the old-timers and gurus get wrong. It''s usually down to some small feature between two closely related varieties, but this book does a good job delineating between the varieties.

Can''t go wrong with an Audubon book for any topics. This 640 page book has 540 excellent pictures for identification of the different tree species. The pictures combined with the complete description (broken into description, habitat and range sections) makes identification very easy to complete. It also contains a very good glossary section. Physical dimensions makes this book an excellent companion when out in the field.

Been to the West cost and the east cost furthest north and furthest south. places where trees are overly abundant and places where there are none at all. Of all the places I have been it is The Forest of the USA they have always held my attention So I live no less then 30 min drive from Richloam Florida

"Richloam Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is one of seven large tracts of land that make up the Withlacoochee State Forest. The Richloam Tract, consisting of more than 58,000 acres, is located in Hernando, Pasco, Sumter, and Lake counties."

Richloam is in the area of Ridge manor FL, this book will be an amasing piece of reference as I have seen trees from the west, and east of course. SO now my walks in those woods are going to be very fulfilling.

Comfortably sits in your hands, the pictures are plentiful and really well done. Everything is very smartly organized, easy to follow, great information. Only heads up is my hubby found the print way too small, so you may need glasses to read this. However, how else are they going to fit all that excellent information into a handy, small, packed full, travel friendly, flexible book. Oh my one take away was it was not packed in water proof packaging. Mine was delivered in the pouring rain and thrown outside my gate. Luckily I arrived home in time that the book was only slightly damp and not ruined. Not environmentally sound but should be plastic wrapped! I''ll be ordering all the rest of the series.

A good range of species is represented here, although not as intensive as some other, larger guides. High quality of photographic plates you''d expect from an Audubon book. While not being the most comprehensive field guide out there, it will get the job done for the major endemic tree species and help steer you in the right direction if your subject is not presented in the book. And of course like all Audubon guides, its sturdy construction will survive the rigors of actual outdoor use. I spilt orange juice on my copy and it''s fine.
