d guide to tree identification contains more than 1,000 full-color photographs. Each tree is illustrated in full detail - by leaf, flower, fruit, bark, and mature tree shape - and is fully described in the text. A unique leaf index makes the identification of trees simple and accurate. The trees are arranged alphabetically by Latin name and an index of common names concludes the book. I'm a big fan of the Random House series of plant books authored by Phillips and Rix and I was expecting something of the quality of their books on perennials and bulbs. Now the book is glossy, the photographs excellent and each tree listed is given a concise desciption of its habit and range.

Visualization of a Random Forest Model Making a Prediction. After all, if we put garbage in then we will get garbage out. The trees of the forest and more importantly their predictions need to be uncorrelated (or at least have low correlations with each other). While the algorithm itself via feature randomness tries to engineer these low correlations for us, the features we select and the hyper-parameters we choose will impact the ultimate correlations as well.

The Bestselling Books of All Time. More than 1,000 annotated illustrations depict the height, shape, foliage, buds and seed of each species, with trees bearing a strong resemblance shown side by side to highlight their distinctive differences.

Finally a book that has a bare tree drawing, an ink sketch like a skeleton of a tree, next to each tree for quick reference of shapes. I use this as an art reference book, and appreciate the layout for that.

This is a very through book however it is done by illustrations rather than photos.

I found the book difficult to follow because of the way it was organized: all the leaves in one section, the bark in another, the shape of the tree in yet another. I still don't know what the tree is outside my window... which is why I bought the book in the first place.

This is one of the best guides for quick lookup of trees you don't know the name of. They have a series of leaf patterns and are grouped sensibly to make it quick to identify that tree you are curious about. Highly recommended !!

remarkably helpful with wild (northern ca) and many, many ornamentals

A good guide to indentifing tree types

Bought this book in hopes of identifying some Oak trees on our property at least 10 years ago. It's a frustrating book. Yes, it has lots of very good quality photos, and lots of different trees. But it falls far short of a comprehensive reference on North American trees. It is poorly organized for quick reference. Furthermore, it might have a photo with a particular tree's leaf in the leaf section of the book, but not a photo of that tree's bark in the section at the end of the book. In fact, the bark section is very lean. If you are able to quickly identify a tree with this book, it was probably a very common tree with little ambiguity and should count yourself lucky. I have tried to identify trees from this book on four different occasions and never been able to nail it. That ought to tell you something. Having said all that, trying to compile a book to identify trees is a massive undertaking, and any reference that has something another does not is probably useful. To really do it justice, you couldn't come close to it with the few pages in this book. So, several tree books is probably the best way to tackle it, and if you are looking to buy your first one, look to one with many high reviews, and at least twice as many pages as this one. I rate this book 2 1/2 stars.
To fill my information needs to provide the service of a Designer and Arborist, I've found that no single book is perfect, nor teaches every aspect:

Considering that, this book about Trees of North America is one of the better books for for illustrating plant parts like leaves, for plant Identification - for the money. It helps me help others.

Some books contain more tree species and cultivars - but be ready to spend 3 to 5 times more money too. And, many more expensive books, although the photos are nice, don't have the same side-by-side comparisons that this Trees of North America book has.

The photos of leaves, twigs, flowers and bark, are all enlarged sufficiently to see the details without "straining" or guessing.

If I need to take one book in-the-field with me, this is the one. The weight is appropriate for transport, and it gets the job done.

This is not what I'd call a cultural care book. It is a good plant ID and plant selection book. You will know if cones are too big, or the tree will be too small - or large.

Since tree care and selection requires several books - this will be one to include in that landscape library assortment. I own several other much more expensive books, but I still have this one, and it's not leaving my library.
