Good Guide for Learning and Reference.

Picked up several of the series for art references. Goes through explaining the types of leaves, brief details about the trees and where they're found geographically. Full color detailed illustrations of leaves, branches, flowers, fruits and nuts that grow on them.

Quite small and thin, good info of course...

The peterson field guides are always great...great info, easy to navigate and superb information. My only comment would be that they are smaller than the old field guides. I have pocket guides from when I was a kid - so when I bought these for my daughter for Christmas this year, I thought she'd be getting the same as me, just newer/shinier/stiffer. The pictures are better than the old ones and they are still easy to navigate, however theses are truly a pocket guide and much thinner. They are about an inch shorter and about 1/2" thinner than the pocket guides I got 15 years ago, so just be advised when ordering, these are gonna be smaller than what you may already think.

handy reference great for kids

this little book is perfect to take along on a trip or picnic to identify trees. lots of information in an easy to understand format, especially for kids but not bad for the adults either.

Very good and inexpensive book

I foun this one a very good book, it doesnt have any photos, but color illustrations are very descriptive and useful.Its a must have because it covers all kind of trees, even some palm and cacti.You wont find any problem to identify any tree, differences are very well noted on this book.I give it four stars because it doesnt have an overview of trees forms, it only shows leaves, thorns, fruits, but not the tree form and dimensions.
