The Encyclopedia of Trees is the first in a series of lavishly illustrated reference books published by Key Porter Books. It is a comprehensive study of the 300 tree species native to North America, alphabetically organized according to Latin name. The Encyclopedia of Trees acquaints readers with all currently recognized tree species native to North America, providing a "snap-shot" description of each tree, its most salient features and its natural environment. Benvie highlights the significant and notable uses and values of each species, and furnishes the work with a comprehensive chart rating zone hardiness. This is a useful guide for selecting and situating trees and will be invaluable to the gardener for determining whether a particular tree is adaptable to the summer and winter temperature extremes in any given area. Lavishly illustrated with vivid full colour photographs on every page and written in simple, practical language, this book is useful to anyone interested in gardening or landscaping in North America.
