The woody plant flora of British Columbia is rich and diverse. In the majestic rain forests of the coast and the expansive grasslands of the interior, in river valleys and alpine meadows, trees or shrubs usually dominate the plant communities. Trees and Shrubs of British Columbia is the definitive guide to all native and naturalized species of woody plants in the province. It is comprehensive and technically complete, yet easy to use.

T. Christopher Brayshaw describes almost 300 species of trees and shrubs, as well as many subspecies and varieties. Each description is accompanied by beautifully detailed illustrations of leaves, flowers, fruit and woody parts. Effective keys and comparative diagrams aid in identification.
