This book is a guide to the many trees species in Canada and the Northern United States.
It evolved from the popular Native Trees of Canada which eight edition and and over 75 years provided information on trees in nontechnical language and in an easy-to-use format.
The last edition, published in 1979, gave only passing mention to non-native or introduced trees.
This book includes descriptions of introduced species that are commonly planted or naturalized in Canada.
The text for the new edition has been reviewed by forest science specialists across Canada and the US.
This is a book that is a must-read for everyone in Canada who is interested in trees. They seem to grace our landscapes. But we know so little about them, until now, that is.
The book is filled with information and illustrations of the various trees in Canada. It is a resource for both the older high school student and the adult.
