From the back cover of the book:
"Many people know how to identify trees by their leaves, but what about when those leaves have fallen or are out of reach? With detailed information and illustrations covering each phase of a tree's lifecycle, this indispensible guidebook explains how to identify trees by their bark alone."


For many years I have wished for a guide to the bark of trees and now I have one. Bark, a Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast is a fun, easy to use field guide that begins with a key to bark types. Not just a field guide, it is full of information on the treesx themselves. I have been having fun learning the bark of the trees in my backyard.
