Trees are all around us, yet we often take them for granted. Some live more than 1500 years, others produce spectacular colour displays in the autumn, many have medicinal properties, and at least one tree releases its seeds in fire. This concise, attractive guide features more than 50 amazing species along with 188 crisp full colour photos. Images show entire trees and also details of flowers, cones, fruit and bark. Species information includes detailed descriptions and specific notes on habitat, range, unique characteristics, along with a range map and key identification features. This new guide makes identification of trees and tall shrubs easier that ever and offers fascinating reading on the trees of the Pacific Northwest.
