    Complete field guide to the trees of North America...but lacking something

    Before I write a review on this field guide, I should tell you why I bought it in the first place, so that you have some background for what I was looking for. I am an amateur biologist living on the East Coast of the United States, and I have lately been identifying trees for fun. At first, I was using a different field guide which only listed trees from the East Coast of North America. I often ran into frustration when I could not find a tree species in that other field guide, and I discovered that many Western tree species have been planted in the East. So, I wanted a book that contained all the tree species, including Western trees. The NWF's guide is nice because it is a more or less complete inventory of the trees found in North America. However, it is not as easy to use as other guides, mainly because it does not have plates grouping trees based on leaf/needle shape, flower morphology, and fruit/cone characteristics. Instead, the tree species are grouped solely by family. It has nice pictures and does have detailed information on all these characteristics, but the problem is being able to locate the tree species in the first place. This book may be okay for a professional that is familiar with all the tree families, but it is not ideal for an amateur. So, this field guide is not too useful on its own, but it does serve as a handy back-up reference (especially if you are running into the problem I described above).

    Fantastic layout, with an easy-to-use method of sorting through various leaf types to identify the type of tree in the field. I am using this book with my son Boy Scouts, and find this title to be one of the best to quickly identify the trees.
