Overview


From the iconic lone cypress on the Monterey coastline to the palm trees of Beverly Hills and the magnificent coastal redwoods, trees are a defining element of California's spectacular and exceptionally diverse landscape. This abundantly illustrated, beautifully produced, easy-to-use volume is a one-stop guide to California's trees. An essential resource for gardeners, homeowners, landscape design professionals, and anyone interested in the state's abundant flora, it provides a comprehensive photographic compendium of 107 native and 311 ornamental species. Trees of the California Landscape gives the what, how, and where of tree selection, planting, and design, paying particular attention to the need for improving sustainability and for increasing awareness of native habitats. It also features a valuable overview of the topography, geography, and climates that define California's unique landscape.
