0 Reviews
This useful manual provides a means for easy identification of the native and cultivated conifers of northeastern North America. The territory covered is roughly eastern Canada and the northeastern fourth of the United States, from Maine south to the southern border of Pennsylvania, west to Kansas, and north to North Dakota. Because it includes so many cultivated species, the book treats the great majority of conifers found in the western United States and Europe as well. Twenty-seven genera and 130 species are included.
