About this book

This guide to the identification of just over two hundred of Texas' most common native and naturalized trees brims over with life-sized, black-and-white photographs of leaves, fruit, flowers, and bark. Scanned directly from actual specimens, these images accompany species descriptions that include height, growth rate, commercial or wildlife value, family, and vegetation region of the trees, alongside captivating folklore and interesting cultural and historical annotations.

...contains a wealth of fascinating information on both native trees and those introduced species that are widely naturalized. Here beginner and experienced naturalists alike can learn to identify most Texas trees while, at the same time, delving into the folklore, history, and wildlife ecology of the Lone Star State.
- John and Gloria Tveten
