About this book

Sappi Tree Spotting is a new, easy method of tree identification, written for the newcomer to the area, as well as the experienced tree enthusiast. It won’t take long before you are able to recognise almost three-quarters of the larger trees you see in the Bushveld.

This book is based on three innovative concepts:
- lt keeps the terminology simple. The average recreational tree spotter will never use ‘pubescent’ when hairy will do!
- Most trees are easy to find, as long as you look for the right trees in the right places.
- Some trees can be identified easily because of their Striking Features. These trees do not need a complex system of ‘keying’, because they are instantly recognisable.

Innovative, accurate maps provide precise location information. Colour-coding lists the likely trees you will encounter in each area.
