Audobon's field guides are amazing. The pictures alone are worth the price of the book. I found it very easy to use and have just started to learn about the trees around my new home in the southwest. Great for the person like myself just wanting to learn more about trees - but I imagine this book can be found on the shelves of many dendrologists.
