Contains all you need to identify a tree in the US state, whatever the season. Text and illustrations appear on facing pages for ease of identification. Not since Charles Deam's Trees of Indiana was published in 1953 has the subject been covered so thoroughly. Ecologist Marion T Jackson has selected approximately 101 species of trees, mostly native to the state but also others that are widely naturalized or planted extensively.
"This book will leave Hoosiers with more information about trees thancould be gathered in a lifetime.... This guide is ideal for any naturalist, hiker, landscaper, or student." -- Northern Indiana Lakes, May 2009
