This teriffic little book is paper, lightweight -- and can identify nearly every tree I threw at it! (Comon, we're talking about trees in the outdoors, not funny thinks they've imported at the nursery!)
Tree Finder is an expert system reduced to a simple booklet. Look at the leaf, find the picture on page zz, which asks a diagnostic question and directs you to one of several other pages, depending on the answer. In three or four page turns, you have a positive tree identification. Nifty! Hey, even fun!!
I bought Tree Finders for all my outdoor friends --they all loved it and now carry The Tree Book on hikes.

I agree with everything the previous reviewer from Yorba Linda said, so I'll make this review short. I also carry this pocket-size book with me on all my desert hikes, and aside from being lightweight it also happens to be the most useful book I know of for quick and easy identification of desert trees (some of which look very similar to each other and would be hard to identify without a book like this). For example, on my last hike in northwest Arizona where I live, I was able to use this book to easily distinguish the canotia crucifixion-thorn from the other two common crucifixion-thorns and other similar-appearing trees such as the smokethorn. If you carry this little book around with you long enough, eventually all the desert trees will start seeming like old familiar friends. And you can't beat the price either!

It may be small in size, but this guide was large in its helpfulness to learn the flora of the desert on our recent hiking trip to Joshua Tree National Park. Simple and concise illustrations. It added to the interest and enjoyment of our recent trip.

My husband's niece is in AZ and this has been a perfect gift for her living in this area . . . even her brother down there is loving it. It's very precise, easy to follow . . . after all it's just an enormous decision tree! Quite easy to use too.
