Students, professionals, tree lovers, and native plant enthusiasts alike will fall in love with Native Plants of the Southeast. The diversity of woody plants in the Southeast is unparalleled in North America. Native Trees of the Southeast is a practical, compact field guide for the identification of the more than 225 trees native to the region, from the Carolinas and eastern Tennessee south through Georgia into northern Florida and west through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas into eastern Texas. For confident identification, nearly 600 photographs, close to 500 of them in color, illustrate leaves, flowers and fruits or cones, bark, and twigs with buds. Crucial differences between plants that may be mistaken for each other are discussed and notes on the uses of the trees in horticulture, forestry, and for wildlife are included.

Having been around for a few years, ahem, I have seen times when references focusing on the Southeast simply weren't available. Esp. for my home state Florida. It's wonderful to see identification books focusing on the Southern states.
Although it took some getting used to as I am not familiar with Latin names and this is how this book is arranged, I really enjoy this book--it's not too big to take along in the woods, and is designed to be used outdoors. I enjoy having it with me in the car, even on local trips. The content and photos are extremely helpful. I look forward to increasing my knowledge of SE trees with this delightful guide!
