From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8 Oversized, lushly illustrated, and innovatively presented, this volume focuses on the diversity and functions of trees as organisms in the world biosphere. Each subject, such as cones, pollution and disease, and bark, is presented in a two-page spread with a general explanation accompanied by color pictures and drawings with paragraph-length captions. This format is especially effective in demonstrating such processes as tree germination or in pointing out differences through comparison as in seeds and nuts. The book will work well as a ready reference source. However, it would be most useful when read cover-to-cover for an overall understanding of trees in the context of the world environment. This volume has the pictorial advantage of the old standard Trees of North America (Western, 1968) by Herbert Zim, but with a more sophisticated look to appeal to ever more visually-oriented users.
