Series: National Audubon Society Field Guides.

Photographs are excellent but are all close-ups rather than imaging the whole tree at different times in the year.

Can't go wrong with an Audubon book for any topics. This 640 page book has 540 excellent pictures for identification of the different tree species. The pictures combined with the complete description (broken into description, habitat and range sections) makes identification very easy to complete. It also contains a very good glossary section. Physical dimensions makes this book an excellent companion when out in the field.

The National Audobon series of identification books are always the best. Hundreds of tree species are shown in crisp color photos. Trees are group by leaf and other features making it easy to identify your tree of interest in a matter of seconds. At the bottom of each photo is a tree and page number that takes you to relevant information about each species. This is the best tree identification book that I have found and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about trees in the eastern half of the United States. One note is that the book is relatively heavy due to the extensive information provided so this may be better used as reference book in the home rather than for a hiking guide.

Last year I was conducting field work in forests within the eastern US, so this year I decided to purchase this guide to help with tree identification as it is a necessary component of my job. My favorite part about this guide is the photographs of each tree species, as well as the illustrations and descriptions that go along with them. There is just a wealth of images and information to find here in such a compact book. I can go to this guide for reference and verification and it generally points me in the right direction. I take it with me every time I go out into the field now.

I am a general nature enthusiast, especially concerning my local natives, and have found this book extremely useful in helping me identify species just around my home alone. By itself, I've correctly identified 3, and with additional resources 5 altogether in just the 2 short weeks I've had this book. First off, let me say that if I understand correctly, this book is the 1995 print, meaning, and I have firsthand experience of this, that some info, mostly that of scientific names, is incorrect. But be assured, 99% is correct and very useful. Included is colored pictures of the leaves, flowers, and bark of a variety of trees, which, unlike other accounts seem to proclaim, includes many common occurring trees of your back yard. Also, a short paragraph is written for each species detailing the leaves, twigs, fruit, etc. Overall, its a great guide, one that you can take on a hike or walk through the park. However, I recommend this book for what it is used best for: a localizing base to narrow your search criteria. It most definitely will usher you to the correct family, and point you to the right genus. Here are some additional web resources sure to help:

This guide is really helpful when picking out what tree grow well in my region. The guide is easy to use and well organized. The information about the trees I live with is fascinating.

I am an outdoor enthusiast and was looking for a quality field guide to help with the identification of lesser known tree species, primarily in the spring, summer and early fall months. I have a very good grasp on the basic species in my area but needed help with a few species that look VERY much alike, as well as trees that fall into the rarer category.

As usual, I did as much research ahead of time as possible and ended up with three top choices. As I went through the reviews I found a reoccurring theme. The theme was that NO ONE FIELD GUIDE WILL MEET ALL YOUR NEEDS. Field guides are not textbooks and of necessity are not exhaustive because of size constraints. Each guide deals with this in its own fashion. Some are short on text and quality descriptions. Others are short on high quality pictures of leaf, bark, and general tree shape. Still others suffer from inadequate I.D. layout.

After considering all the variables the three that ended up on the top of the list were: National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American trees (Eastern Region) (NAS), Peterson Field Guide to Eastern Trees (PFG) and National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Trees of North America (NWF). I live in Indiana so all three fit my location. On the upside, of the three guides the NAS has the best, clearest, and most detailed plates (pictures) of leaves and bark. It is also the most compact size of the three books mentioned. It can be carried in a standard cargo pants pocket. For use as a visual aid it is excellent. Its weakness lies in its poor layout and lack of logical ID method. I would not recommend this book as a PRIMARY identification guide. Because of its poor layout I believe it fits more of a backup role. I can't say that I am disappointed with it because I purposely purchased it with the intent that it would supplement the other book(s) I planned on obtaining.

Out of the three books I purchased above I found the NWF to be the most useful and complete guide. I believe (IMHO) that it has the best combination and balance of all the areas I mentioned above. It is however the largest of the three and is not a pocket field guide by any stretch of the imagination. It is even a little heavy for my taste to take on an extended hike in a backpack.

If the PFG had better graphics and pictures I would have rated it at the top. It is an excellent resource, but I just could not get past the poor graphics and lack of realistic pictures that the other two books provide.

I like most Audubon Field Guides; however, this one is a little disappointing as it fails to help one identify deciduous trees in winter when they have no leaves, flowers or fruit. Photographs are excellent but are all close-ups rather than imaging the whole tree at different times in the year.
I love how resourceful this guide is. It has full color pictures to help identify species in their natural habitats. I have a few other dendrology books and they’re all black and white which can make identification a little more difficult. My family and I went on a hike after this was delivered and my children really enjoyed referencing what we found in the book! I will be purchasing the other regions to add to our collection!
