About this book

This is a fully revised edition of the best selling "Trees of Natal, Zululand and Transkei" (1993).

It is a compact guide describing all the larger woody plants of the Eastern Region of South Africa, home to over 63% of all the tree species south of the Limpopo river. The full range covered will extend through KwaZulu-Natal; Eastern Cape, north of the Buffalo River; Lesotho; Eastern Free State; Swaziland and southern Mozambique. Due to its unique and comprehensive nature, the book may also be used as far north as Zambia.

- 1,100 species described, and 74 invasive alien species
- Family and genus descriptions
- Informative text facing the colour plates
- Line drawings of the leaves
- Colour distribution maps
- A new key and highlighting diagnostic features to aid identification
