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.

"Although the book is indeed a major expansion and reworking of Muenscher's 1950 version, author Cope made concerted efforts to retain the ease of using the book as originally developed by Muenscher. Muenscher's Keys to Woody Plants serves admirably beginning naturalists, as well as professional botanists. Also recommended for public, academic, and special libraries."-William Burk, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Biology Library, E-Streams, Vol. 5, No. 8, August 2002
