Treehuggers rejoice! If you’re a nature lover who always wondered “What Tree Is That?” whenever hiking by an interesting-looking tree, you can now get a book that’ll instantaneously answer your question.
Have a good idea what the tree is and just want to verify your guess? Flip to the index in the back to crosscheck the tree you see to the hand drawn diagram of the tree’s features in the book. Curious if a tree’s an invasive species? Turn to the pages devoted to identifying those. The back flap of What Tree Is That?
also handily doubles as a ruler, so you can quickly measure leaves or buds to help you with identification.
You don’t have to buy the book to take advantage of The Arbor Day Foundation’s tree identification guide. Those with photographic memories can just remember all the details of the tree, then put it through the web guide
once they get back near a computer. And those with hi-tech cell phones and great reception can use What Tree Is That? Mobile
