This is an excellent, affordable guide to trees. It has all the necessary trees to look for in one slim volume. I do wish that pictures would be taken, and also information about bark is missing. Maybe drawings of bark texture on the trunk would be appropriate? However, it covers the same things as the [National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees--E: Eastern Region (Eastern)] and the [National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees--W: Western Region (National Audubon Society Field Guides)], and at a cheaper price, too.
