This is the treed landscape knowledge source, and the design and management tool we have all been hoping to see for decades. Bridging horticulture and design, it spans without judgment native specifics, introduced "near-native," and trees. It is my hope that Chuck's book will stimulate greater use of California's drought tolerant native trees in landscape plantings because of their reduced water requirements and ecological compatibility with other native plants and animals. -Monty Knudsen, Assistant Project Leader, USDI Fish & Wildlife Service.

This is a huge beautiful book designed for landscapers, planners and architects. One of the smartest things about it is that for almost all the deciduous trees listed there is a photo of the tree in leaf and bare. Frequently the exact same tree! If you love trees, as I do, and live in California, this book is a treasure. However, although a great reference, it is pricey and heavy, and not a field guide. Also, it does not include fruit trees or shrubs, so it's not a general landscape book. I first borrowed it at my library - but I was greedy and had to have a copy for myself, and I have put it to good uset in the landscaping around our place where we've planted many CA natives.It's magnificent.

Trees of the California Landscape is a treasure and should be in the library of every tree lover in California. It has excellent photos of a lot of trees: from a distance, and also close-up shots of their flowers, leaves, and bark. One can use this book to identify a great number of trees by just thumbing through the pages and simply finding the tree. There are also other ways. If you know what the flowers, leaves, or fruits of a particular tree look like you can take a different route and identify it through them. There's a wealth of information on each tree and so much more hidden in every nook and cranny of this book. I definitely recommend it; well worth the money.

This is the most comprehensive compilation of facts about trees you will find in California anywhere. Before I bought this book I went to my local library to see it and judge if it were a reference book I would/could keep for a long time. There are few if any used ones for sale in the market place. This indicates to me that those that buy this book KEEP it. It was a lot of money to spend on a book but it is well worth it. It's a keeper!!

This is a comprehensive guide to street trees of California. It not only contains hundreds of pictures of trees and leaves, but it also has a detailed key to trees also. It isn't perfect - it couldn't help me to identify my neighbor's Coast Banksia (I had to ask), but it contains most of the common trees found in a Southern California suburb. A familiarity with botany definitely will help though. I highly recommend this book if you are seriously interested in identifying your local trees.

Perfect!

if you live in CA and are interested in trees, then this is the book to buy. The book doesn't have every single tree you'll find, but it has a great selection.
Excellent photo illustrations, great information, and the price is cheap for the quality photos that it has. I recommend the book highly.
