This small pocket guide to the more common fall color trees (6 X 4, 64 pp) 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.
