A reprint under a new ISBN, A Photographic Guide to Trees of New Zealand, is a compact yet comprehensive guide to identifying and learning about New Zealand’s trees.
Each species in the guide is illustrated with one or more photographs, and where possible juvenile forms have also been illustrated. The trees illustrated are the commoner species that are more likely to be seen when journeying around various parts of New Zealand, making this the perfect companion for interested hikers, tourists and travellers.
A Photographic Guide to Trees of New Zealand is designed with the amateur botanist and enthusiast in mind, and avoids over-use of technical botanical terms.
