Review:

That rare book that combines the interesting, the functional, and the educational... A splendid field guide to the trees of Washington, D.C.

(Naturalist Review)

Not only full of trees, buds, catkins, berries... it is also full of history.

(Christian Science Monitor)

A splendid field guide―practical, botanically sound, and filled with good stories.

(Washington Post Book World)
