Two volumes (when one would suffice) of general information about trees and forests followed by alphabetically arranged articles on about 200 kinds of trees. The articles give descriptive and botanical data and discuss growing habits and special characteristics. Each includes at least one illustration, but production values are so poor--colors are faded or improperly screened--that the photos and artwork afford little pleasure and their instructional value is impaired as well. The bibliography acknowledges 26 reference sources, none dated after 1979. Includes (in the second volume only) identification keys, indices of common and Latin names, and a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.

DIVLifelong gardener Judy Lowe gives you the knowledge to make the right cut the first time./divDIV /divDIV“Pruning panic� is an all-too-familiar feeling among even experienced gardeners, but it’s especially prevalent among those of us who are new to the practice. In Pruning: An Illustrated Guide, award-winning gardening writer Judy Lowe imparts over two decades of expertise, focusing on the most common backyard pruning needs for the most commonly grown landscape plants. From trees and shrubs to hydrangeas, azaleas, roses, and other perennials, Lowe takes an in-depth approach to all the pruning essentials. Throughout the book, her advice is accompanied by brilliantly detailed step-by-step line drawings that clearly demonstrate where and how to make precise, effective cuts. Lowe removes all intimidation from the pruning process: beyond the craft itself, you’ll gain an understanding of the basic science behind plant growth, why plants need pruning, when they’ll need it, and how pruning techniques can vary between plant species. So the next time you pick up a pruning saw or a pair of loppers, panic will be the furthest thing from your mind—and from your garden./div

A thorough yet user-friendly companion to the authors' popular paperback Sugarloaf: The Mountain's History, Geology, and Natural Lore--both books are the result of a ten-year collaboration--this volume is an exquisitely illustrated guide to 350 eastern woodland wildflowers and trees found on site at Sugarloaf Mountain, Maryland. Many of these plants also thrive across a wide region of the eastern United States and Canada, making this guide a remarkably helpful resource for both mid-Atlantic naturalists--amateur and experienced--and botanical enthusiasts across North America. Author Melanie Choukas-Bradley and illustrator Tina Thieme Brown have teamed up once again to create a practical tool for answering the age-old question frequently raised by visitors to the woods: "What is that plant over there?" At the same time, Choukas-Bradley and Brown aim to educate by presenting the plants grouped by family, so that the observer will learn to anticipate the presence of certain plants based on an understanding of their family characteristics. The text describes each plant's flower, leaf, and growth habit, gives its ideal habitat and range, describes similar species that might be confused with the plant, and gives an herbal history where applicable. And because plants are organized by family and genus, the scholarly reader can build on his or her botanical knowledge. An Illustrated Guide to Eastern Woodland Wildflowers and Trees includes a user-friendly key, an illustrated glossary of frequently used botanical terms, and is packed with nearly 400 elaborately and artistically detailed pen-and-ink drawings to make plant identification simple and fun.
