Like the "Wildflowers of the Carolinas" and "Birds of the Carolinas" field guides, this is a neat little (postcard-sized, about 5/8 inch thick, 10.5 oz) book that easily slips into your coat pocket to carry on a hike. It looks to be very easy to use by the lay person with little or no background in botany. The plants are organized by leaf shape and arrangement (e.g. needles, simple opposite, lobed alternate etc.) with a small schematic on each page depicting the arrangement to give a visual for those unfamiliar with the botanical terminology. A couple of the terms are explained with drawings in the beginning of the book, and a glossary in the back provides further explanations.

Each tree species is represented on two opposing pages: The left page consists of a full-page nice quality photograph showing the leaves and often in little inserts the bark, fruits or other identifying features. The right page contains a description including a little icon of a winter tree silhouette accompanied by a two-story house to indicate the average size of a mature tree, and leaf shapes are shown with an icon underneath the page numbers. While not comprehensive, the book covers a good proportion of the tree species you may find in the Carolinas. There is a checklist/index in the back that lists common names, but there is no index for scientific names though they are listed on the individual species pages.

My main criticism is that the focus of the book seems to be on identifying trees mainly in summer. Fall colors are mentioned in the descriptions, but not shown in pictures. Flowers and fruits are often depicted to help during spring and fall. However, no information is given about e.g.

I actually bought this book when I moved to my property in Clayton, NC and realized I had more than 30 species of trees, most of which I had never come across. I catalogued leaves and took pictures of the bark structure for each plant and then went through the book and labeled each tree one at a time. Sounds anal because it is. I used this book for what its worth, finding what trees you've got. It also has helped me make decisions to where I am going to plant a tree based on height and length of life and look. Very helpful book well worth the cost.

I purchased this book to help me get started identifying trees on my own property, and it has been a great help. Everything in this small book is concise, clear, and easy to understand. Pictures are great and the information is thorough but not overwhelming. If you're looking for a starter book on identifying trees in the Carolinas, you'll appreciate having this book in your library.

Nice little book with great info and a very good layout for finding trees. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that some of the pictures are not as representative as they could be and I found it hard to sort out the various types of pine tree that are similar.

This is a great guide for those beginning honing their tree loving skills. However, I tried using this at a competition for Science Olympiad, and it pales in comparison (in terms of quickly accessing information) to the Audubon field guide.

Great book for identifying trees in the yard (why I wanted it)- compact and easy to walk around with. An earlier reviewer said this pales in comparison to the Audubon Regional Guide for the Southeastern US, so I bought that too. The Audubon Guide is indeed far more comprehensive and includes animals and birds but if all you need is an easy guide to identify trees this one is terrific.

Out of the 4 guides I have on NC's trees this is my favorite. Although it's not complete the varieties it covers are easy to identify from the pictures and text and it does hit ~80% of what's on my land (river edge, Piedmont region).
