Guidebook IDs trees

June 19, 2007

The National Arbor Day Foundation has a resource available to help the average person identify trees in a simple, step-by-step process.

"What Tree Is That?" is a 72-page pocket guidebook that helps distinguish different characteristics of many species of trees in Maryland and the Eastern and Central regions of the U.S. The book also includes dozens of detailed drawings that illustrate the shapes and textures of different leaves, needles, acorns, berries, seed pods, cones and other identifying features.

"Helping people enjoy and appreciate trees is central to the education mission of the Arbor Day Foundation," said John Rosenow, foundation president. "Being able to identify trees is important to knowing how to care for them and how to plant the right tree in the right place."

To obtain a tree identification guide, send your name and address and $3 for each guide to "What Tree Is That?," The National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410. The book also can be ordered online at www.arborday.org.
