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 indispensable guidebook explains how to identify trees by their bark alone. Chapters on the structure and ecology of tree bark, descriptions of bark appearance, an easy-to-use identification key, and supplemental information on non-bark characteristics-all enhanced by over 450 photographs, illustrations, and maps-will show you how to distinguish the textures, shapes, and colors of bark to recognize various tree species, and also understand why these traits evolved. Whether you're a professional naturalist or a parent leading a family hike, Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast is your essential guide to the region's 67 native and naturalized tree species.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book will be a great addition to other tree books that we use in the field. No native tree shall go unidentified!"-- "New York Flora Association Blog"
"Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast provides a unique look at some of the most majestic components of the northeastern flora and is a wonderful alternative to more traditional keys based on leaf or twig traits."-- "Journal of the Torrey Botanical Society"
"This reviewer always assumed that bark was too variable to use as a primary characteristic for tree identification, but natural history/tree researcher Wojtech has proven him wrong . . . Recommended."-- "Choice"
"Periderm and lenticels are generally not topics to inspire poetry or jump-start conversations, but naturalist Michael Wojtech's Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast may change that. Packed with cocktail-party ready facts and an easy-to-use identification guide for 67 Northeastern species, the surprisingly readable text is a must-have for both tree nerds and new-to-nature types."-- "Adirondack Life"
