Michigan Trees - A Guide to the Trees of the Great Lakes Region
If you buy one tree guide this year, this should be it. Now in its tenth decade of publication, Michigan Trees is the must-have reference book for anyone who wants to learn about the trees of this unique North American region. Written and illustrated in a style that appeals to botanists, ecologists, and amateur naturalists alike, Michigan Trees gives readers everything they need to know for identifying the trees of the Great Lakes.
Tree identification is a matter of knowing what characteristics to look for and where the tree is growing—its home place in the landscape. Elegant line drawings, contrasting key characters, and vegetative keys to genera and species all encourage reliable year-round identification.
The updated edition adds thirteen tree species, including three of the rarest: pumpkin ash, shumard oak, and swamp cottonwood. In addition to its new sections on fall color and hybridization, Michigan Trees calls attention to counterparts of the region's trees that are worldwide in the Northern Hemisphere. Travel in the forests of the world is fascinating; in the North American West, Europe, and east Asia you are likely to find a tree friend reminding you of home—just the names have been changed!
Since it first appeared in 1913, Michigan Trees has inspired thousands with its comprehensive scope and definitive information on trees; this new edition will surely encourage the next generation to visit and learn about the leafy inhabitants of the woods, forests, and parks of Michigan and the Great Lakes region.
