Guidebook for Maryland Trees

Guidebook for Maryland Trees

The National Arbor Day Foundation has a resource available to help an average person identify trees in a simple, step-by-step process.
What Tree Is That? is a useful 72-page pocket guidebook that helps distinguish different characteristics of many species of trees in Maryland and the Eastern and Central regions of the United States.
The book also includes dozens of detailed drawings, which accurately illustrate the specific 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 educational mission of the Arbor Day Foundation," said John Rosenow, president of the Foundation. "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. You can also order the book online at www.arborday.org.
