Description

If the monumental New Zealand's Native Trees has inspired you to venture into the outdoors to look more closely at our unique tree flora, this field guide is the perfect companion to take along. Compact enough to fit in a day-pack, it contains detailed information on all native trees found on the main islands of New Zealand, including Stewart Island and the Chathams. Field Guide to New Zealand's Native Trees is organised in three main sections - conifers, tree ferns and flowering trees - and covers 209 species. A visual key to leaf shapes will help to narrow down the identification of the numerous flowering trees. Under each species, headings such as Distribution & Habitat, Size, Bark, Foliage & Habit, Flowers & Fruit lead readers straight to relevant information, and a panel of Distinguishing Features is a useful aid to quick identification. More than1500 superb photographs show the whole tree and its key features, some in very close detail. The most comprehensive and up-to-date field guide to New Zealand's native trees, this handy and beautiful reference book deserves a place in every home, bach, library and school.
