Identification Guide to the Trees of Canada by Jean Lauriault

| /

The Identification Guide to the Trees of Canada identifies every tree that grows in Canada, and features a location map showing where it grows, as well as a detailed study of its leaves and fruit. The book also describes some common ornamentals not native to Canada. Accompanying text contain a wealth of information, including origins of Latin, English and French names, historical data, economic importance, diseases, toxicity, and medicinal properties. Also included are useful tips for tree-related activities, such as how to start a leaf collection or herbarium, and how to determine the age of a tree. Hundreds of drawings illustrate leaf variations within the same species, as well as twigs, flowers, fruits, barks, and tree silhouettes which help to differentiate species from one another.
