Guide to the 20 largest species of conifers in North America - from the southern Sierras to Vancouver Island, and from the coast to northwestern Montana.
This fascinating book documents in detail many but certainly not all of the truly marvellous individual giant trees of the Pacific coast of North America, considered to be the tallest and most dense forests on earth.--Tree News, OCtober 2005 "This fascinating book documents in detail many but certainly not all of the truly marvellous individual giant trees to be found in the forests of the Pacific coast of North America ... The book begins with a fascinating section on tree measuring ... Photographs of these tree titans are accompanied by Van Pelt's own immaculate pen drawings of each individual tree... The drawings are remarkable not only for the skill and artistry of the depictions but also because every detail you see on the tree has been exactly measured with lasers to provide a picture of unprecendented accuracy."--Tree News, Autumn/Winter 2005
