A companion volume to the award-winning and monumental ‘New Zealand’s Native Trees’, this field guide is the perfect companion to take into the outdoors. Compact enough to fit in a day-pack, it contains detailed information on all native trees found on the main islands of New Zealand, including Steward Island and the Chathams.
The book covers well over 200 species, while a visual key to leaf shapes, and a panel of distinguishing features helps to narrow down the identification of our most common trees. More than 1500 superb photographs show the whole tree and its key features, some in close detail.
‘Field Guide to New Zealand’s Native Trees’ is a handy and beautiful reference book that deserves a place in every home, bach, library and school.
