About this book

A complete revision, of the best selling, award-winning landmark book on New Zealand's native trees.

New Zealand's Native Trees is a landmark book, the kind that is published only once in a generation. It celebrates our unique and magnificent native forests, and describes and generously illustrates more than 320 species, subspecies and varieties. This edition has been completely brought up-to-date with a significant number of botanical revisions, as many new species have been described or reclassified in the years since New Zealand's Native Trees was first published in 2011. It is organised in three main parts: conifers, tree ferns and flowering trees. After authoritative introductions to each part, genera are covered in alphabetical order. The botanical features of each species are then described in detail, along with its distribution, habitat and key relationships with other plants and animals.

More than 3200 superb photographs illustrate fascinating close details of flowers, fruits and other features, and show the form of specimen trees, while wider views of habitats place the species in context. Clear-cut illustrations of leaves are included for each species, arranged in plates for easy identification of larger groups.

New Zealand's Native Trees, by respected author–photographer team John Dawson and Rob Lucas, with the collaboration of several of New Zealand's leading botanists, is a wonderful contribution to the documentation and understanding of the richness and diversity of New Zealand's native trees and forests. Valuable as an identification guide, a reference, a resource for landscapers and gardeners, and an inspiration for a new generation of New Zealanders.
