This is an excellent guide to selecting and planting trees and shrubs. It tells you the required climate and soil conditions, which trees and shrubs will grow in your area. It has a very detailed guide to pruning also. There are also some good suggestions for planning and designing your yard. I like how it refers to plants by the common names as well as the latin names; it makes it a lot easier to find what you're looking for. I'm no expert, but it seems pretty complete. It certainly covers all the trees and shrubs available at my local nurseries.

This is not quite what I had hoped for in a guide to identifying different types of trees and shrubs, but it is still a useful reference. I find that the term "complete" is somewhat overstating the content of this publication.

I borrowed this from my library before deciding that I needed to purchase it since I refer to it a few times per year. It has some detail about each type of tree/shrub including when to prune and other species specific info. This and a similar book are my go-to sources.

This is a very practical guide for ornamental trees and shrubs. The book features some of the most resilient plant materials. The page layout makes it easy to identify requirements, like soil preference, watering and sunlight; in addition height, color variations and complimentary plants.

When to plant, what to plant, the area that they do well in, and a complete guide to understanding what you are doing and do it right. Great seller , too.
