About this book

From the iconic lone cypress on the Monterey coastline to the palm trees of Beverly Hills and the magnificent coastal redwoods, trees are a defining element of California's spectacular and exceptionally diverse landscape. This abundantly illustrated, beautifully produced, easy-to-use volume is a one-stop guide to California's trees. An essential resource for gardeners, homeowners, landscape design professionals, and anyone interested in the state's abundant flora, it provides a comprehensive photographic compendium of 107 native and 311 ornamental species.
"Trees of the California Landscape" gives the what, how, and where of tree selection, planting, and design, paying particular attention to the need for improving sustainability and for increasing awareness of native habitats. It also features a valuable overview of the topography, geography, and climates that define California's unique landscape. This book includes more than 1,000 colour illustrations include spectacular photographs, detailed drawings of specific features, and informative maps. Each species is treated on a full page with an array of colour illustrations and drawings. Habitat ranges, water requirements, growth rates, mature sizes, suitability for specific landscapes, and more, are listed for each tree. A fully illustrated section covers the basics of tree identification.

Belongs right next to 'The Sunset Western Garden Book' in the core library of every California landscape architect, designer, horticulturist and nursery worker. Planners, builders and developers should also find it indispensable.--Herbertia
