Portland publisher Timber Press has field guides to Pacific Northwest wildflowers, wildlife, mushrooms, and insects, as well as the wonderful Must-See Birds of the Pacific Northwest. Now they have just published a new book covering trees and shrubs:
Mark Turner and Ellen Kuhlmann, Trees & Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest (Portland, OR: Timber Press, 2014), 448 pp.
In Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest, Mark Turner and Ellen Kuhlman cover 568 species of woody plants that can be found in Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and northern California. The comprehensive field guides features introductory chapters on the native landscape and plant entries that detail the family, scientific and common name, flowering seasons, and size. Each entry includes color photographs of the plant’s habitat and distinguishing characteristics and a range map.
Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest is for hikers, nature lovers, plant geeks, and anyone who wants to know more about, and be able to identify, the many plants of the Pacific Northwest.
We happily add our new copy to our stack of Timber Press field guides for the Pacific Northwest!
