Pocket Guide To Trees

This award winning book, although reprinted many times, is today out of print. It is a loving introduction to trees like no other field guide you've ever seen. My original copy fell apart from age and I was delighted to find an old reprint for sale. It's a really fun book for those interested in natural history.
Rutherford Platt beautifully describes trees with deep affection and expertise. Uplifting to read, whether during a pause while ambling or from comfy armchair.
Rutherford Platt’s handy reference guide, A Pocket Guide to Trees, is useful for when you're walking around on the trail and want to identify a specific tree.
He includes about 50 photographs and more than 200 drawings. The drawings are one of the best parts of this book. They show everything from the differences among pine, spruce, and fir needle clusters, to witch hazel seeds being shot out of the dehydrated flower.
The book is divided into seven sections. The largest section, The Great American Woods, covers trees that will be found across the country. The other six sections are The Middle West, the South, Southern Florida, Northwest, California, and the Southwest. At the end, Platt has a useful quick tree identification guide based on leaf shaped seeds shaped flowers pinecones, etc.
One of the great joys in browsing through this book is the colorful analogies and entertaining and anecdotes in the tree descriptions. For example Platt compares the Cottonwood leaves to the outlines of the pyramides. He describes how for the Ailanthus growing in the city, "rubbish seems to make it satisfactory fertilizer.” We learn that poising sumac is "more vicious than poison ivy.”
Whether leafing through for your own edification, or trying to identify a tree growing outside, A Pocket Guide to Trees is a helpful, portable book to help you tell the difference between the sorrel tree and the ginkgo or an ironwood and the beech.
This book is no longer in current print. But I have a 1952 copyright original hard cover in mint condition. The original book had a plain red color with only the title on the spine and nothing on the cover or the back.
