About this book

From the understory flowering dogwood presenting its showy array of white bracts in spring, to the stately, towering bald cypress anchoring swampland with their reddish buttresses; from aromatic groves of Atlantic white-cedar that grow in coastal bogs to the upland rarity of the fire-dependent montane longleaf pine, Alabama is blessed with a staggering diversity of tree species. Trees of Alabama offers an accessible guide to the most notable species occurring widely in the state, forming its renewable forest resources and underpinning its rich green blanket of natural beauty.

Lisa J. Samuelson provides a user-friendly identification guide featuring straightforward descriptions and vivid photographs of more than 140 common species of trees. The text explains the habitat and ecology of each species, including its forest associates, human and wildlife uses, common names, and the derivation of its botanical name. With more than 800 full-colour photographs illustrating the general form and habitat of each, plus the distinguishing characteristics of its buds, leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark, readers will be able to identify trees quickly. Coloured distribution maps detail the range and occurrence of each species grouped by county, and a "Quick Guide" highlights key features at a glance.

Trees of Alabama also features a map of forest types, a chapter on basic tree biology and terminology (with illustrative line drawings), a spotlight on the plethora of oak species in the state, and a comprehensive index. This is an invaluable resource for biologists, foresters, and educators and a great reference for outdoors people and nature enthusiasts in Alabama and throughout the southeastern United States.

Media reviews

"Samuelson's book is the best available tree identification tool for Alabama because it has an emphasis on the southeast where species complexes tend to be more confusing."
– John L. Clark, associate professor of biological sciences, University of Alabama (2005–2015) and Aldo Leopold Distinguished Teaching Chair, The Lawrenceville School (2015–2018)
