This is the most complete and thorough tree book I have ever used, and I have used as many as I could find. It includes color photos of tree flowers, fruits, berries and seed. There are close-ups of leaves and shots of the entire trees. There is information on growth form, branching patterns, habitats and ranges. And I don't recall ever looking up a species I couldn't find. I'm glad it's hard bound, so it lasts longer. Then again, I'm still wearing mine out!
