Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At first glance, the format of this book seems anitquated. It's a very small book--only 4-1/2" by 7-1/4". Therefore, I was surprised to discover a copyright date of 2005, so it's actually fairly recent. There are no phographs or color in it, but there are 42 black and white plates of leaves, twigs, and seedpods. Many of these illustrations are reproductions of earlier tree guides dating back to the 1960s. It's a fairly dry read, but also extremely comprehensive. The trees are keyed according to how their leaves are arranged. If your interest in tree identification is only casual, this may not be the book for you. But, if you're a serious student of tree identification, then I recommend it.
