A Pocket Guide to the More Colorful Trees of Eastern North America
by C. Ritchie Bell & Anne H. Lindsey
This handy pocket guide, a companion to Fall Color Woodland Harvest, is perfect for carrying on a walk in the woods! With the Fall Color Finder, you can quickly identify most trees in the region. This small pocket guide to the more common fall color trees contains 60 striking color photographs and the basic information to help you identify what tree you're looking at. A unique step-by-step method lets you identify a specific tree from the photos, drawings of leaves, and maps of the ranges where you can find each species. Tourists, teachers, and serious field botanists alike will find this a useful and enjoyable guidebook. The identification key is easy enough for school groups to use, but sophisticated enough to satisfy the amateur botanist. A Leaf/Shape Color Index allows quick identification of a tree by leaf shape and color.
