I found the tree data (leaf, young bark, mature bark, fruit, crown shape, and where to locate examples in and around NYC) sufficient to make many local identifications so far.
One would presumably have an existing interest in tree identification to go and buy a book like this. However, if given as an unexpected gift, there is enough sincerity and information that it just might spark an interest in finding and knowing the wonderful, living trees that cohabitate with us in NYC.
many more times if my health permits. There is just so much more to see and no matter how many times I go, I will
never see everything. But no matter what I need, amazon is my store to go to. Thank you amazon. Pam Spector.
