Format: Paperback
This is a first rate book. The northwest region actually has relatively few native tree species. This is what makes this book simultaneously possible and useful. Given the fewer than twenty native tree species, it is worthwhile to get to know them intimately, to be able to learn something of the distribution, habitat requirements, and ecological role of each species. It is a foundation of an ecological understanding of NW forests. The illustrations are masterly, accurately capturing the gestalt of each species in a way that photographs often cannot.

Format: Paperback
Northwest Trees by Arno and Hammerly is a wonderful guide to the confiers and other trees of the Northwest. Hammerly's pen and ink drawings (over 250) are superb and I think communicate more information than full color photographs would. The book, not only gives the usual information on tree identification, but for each species provides information on its ecological role and fascinating material on human history as it relates to the tree. There is a very easy "key" for identifying the trees. The second edition of the book was published in 2007 and to commemorate 30 years from its first edition it was properly named an Anniversary Edition. The handsome Anniversary Edition is an acknowledgment to the books popularity and usefulness. This book is a classic and I frequently turn to it for information.

Good book but not easy for the layman....too in depth without an easy way to see a tree and use the book to identify it.

This book is JUST what I have been looking for. All of the other identification books for the northwest I have found are so limited in their descriptions I was completely unsure of whether I was IDing vegetation correctly. I want these authors to do more books on other types of flora and fauna and I will buy their books over the 10 others I have that are not nearly as great.

Thank you!!!

I needed a handbook for identifying NW trees.
By chance I bought this book and lucked out.
It is exactly what I was looking for and
I'm enjoying every resource within it.

I am very glad I ordered this book! It provides very readable information, and some unique illustrations.The book does not offer bold and colorful photographs; but rather, it gives the reader sketches of firs,pines, hemlock spruce...as well as trunks, boughs, leaves and fruit...(& still more: aspens, maples,some barks, landscape environments and hybrids).These are artistically astounding! I am learning so much from these drawings, which compliment what I am reading, and what I'm learning in the 'Field'. Thank you for making it available!

If you hike around the Pacific Northwest and marvel at the forests, this is a book for you. For each species there are sections on where it grows, its appearance, its ecological role, and its role in human history. This book is a wonderful complement to Jon Luoma's "The Hidden Forest: Biography of an Ecosystem," which describes the fascinating research conducted in recent decades on old growth forests.
