5.0 out of 5 stars Best for field work March 16 2002
Format:Paperback
As a wetland delineator in PA, this book proves invaluable for field identification of trees, shrubs, and vines. Especially useful is are the keys for identification of these plants in winter when leaves and fruiting bodies are non-existant. I have several other tree books for reference, but they rarely are worth carting along in the field now that I have this book. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the one July 31 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
No mere Peterson field guide, this scholarly work is a concise encyclopedia of all the trees native to the northeastern United States, with descriptions that can truly be used to tell them apart (a unique feat). Belongs in the backpack of any hiker who wants to learn trees. Fits in a half-gallon Ziploc. Remember you need a magnifying glass and a sharp knife to use the book properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive work for identification Sept. 21 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Petrides' work is the most accurate I have found in tree identification. Color pictures are no substitute for a close-up examination of the stems, leaves and fruit of trees and shrubs. It is considered the definitive source for the John Burroughs Naturalist Award bestowed by the Buckeye Council of the Boy Scouts of America only upon those capable of sight identification of approximately 600 trees, shrubs and wildflowers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for identification, lacking in photos Jan. 20 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains all the species I know to be around here, and has a lot of great information. It's lacking in photos though. If you're expecting to get a branch and compare it to a photo or even a drawing, don't get this book. If you know a bit already about trees, and want a book for positive identification, this one can be a real help.
