More than 60 vibrant color photos help you identify the trees in your yard, in your favorite park, in the mountains and in meadows, wetlands and salt marshes.
Grouped by mature size and photographed to display their most distinguishing characteristics—leaf shape, flower, seed, nut, or fruit—common native trees in this guide can be found from the Poconos to the Cape May nature preserves, and throughout Delaware and Maryland as well.
Accompanying text points out the unique features of each tree, to help you tell one tree from another in no time. Six double-sided, waterproof panels fold up to fit into your back pocket, waist pack or purse.
