About this book

Part of the Pocket Guide series launched in 2013, this new guide to trees hits the sweet spot of what National Geographic does best – combining spot-on descriptive information and key facts in a handy, pleasant-to-hold, easy-to-reference volume. Sure to become as familiar as Audubon and Peterson guides and unlike any other beginning field guides, each book in the series features carefully selected photography and newly commissioned art and graphics to illustrate essential identifying features for each tree species. Beautifully designed and illustrated, with logical organisation and bulleted information, these guides are useful in the field or as in-home references. Collect them, one by one, to create a set for the family.
