This book is perfect if you wish to take a walk in the woods and have always wondered, what kind of tree is that? It was recommended to us when we walked along a tree seminar with a park ranger in Cambridge, MA.

Tree Finder is intended for the novice to moderate level tree finder. It is small and easy to carry in a backpack or even a fannypack. There is a key to use, and it is fantastic for grownups and children

This book is ok. It's size is great for a backpack but it lacks enough species to make an accurate identification. If all you are looking for is to identify a tree to the family, this will work decently but if you really want to know what you are looking at I reccomend Peterson's guide to trees and shrubs.

This is the easiest tree finder book that I know of. The pictures are very clear and the process of elimination is easy to understand. This is the book that led to my love of trees. I highly recommend it. Oh, and did I mention how the small size makes it extremely portable on your next hiking trek?!
