About this book

Southern Africa is home to more than 2,000 introduced (not indigenous) trees. These non-native species are encountered daily and form a familiar part of our urban landscapes, growing successfully in parks, gardens, along road sides, and in other open spaces. Guide to Trees Introduced Into South Africa features nearly 600 of the most common and familiar of these and, using the same model of identification as Field Guide to Trees of Southern Africa, facilitates ID based on leaf and stem features. Guide to Trees Introduced Into South Africa provides the country of origin for each species and offers key information on cultivation and uses. Each entry is supported by colour images that depict key features, and a shaded map that shows the plant's cold tolerance (where the species can grow).

An essential guide for landscapers and gardeners as well as tree enthusiasts who will struggle to find these trees in their guide to indigenous trees.
