Summary: A guide to identifying North American Trees.

The Sibley Guide is the best tree guide I’ve ever seen. Topics include: getting started at identifying trees, what is a tree, taxonomy, tree size, maps, habitat, tree conservation, tree identification (by leaves, flowers, fruit, twigs, buds and bark,) and a guide to each tree group (Including but not limited to Pine, Cypress, Laurel, Walnut, Birch, Beech, Willow, Hemp, Cashew, Dogwood, and much, much more.)

Most guides don’t include enough information on HOW to identify the trees but just on what each tree looks like. I used the book to identify some trees although I already know some of them. The illustrations of flowers and leaves and bark are very real with colour and detail. They almost look like real photographs.

I don’t have permission to reprint any pages but if you search Google Images for the book, you can see some samples pages.

Highly Recommended for all tree lovers.
