Choice Review

Trees of New York State is a beautifully illustrated remake of an earlier (1921) book by H.P. Brown. This new version by Leopold (State Univ. of New York) (a fantastic botanical and forestry name!) is meticulously put together with excellent re-creations of the original botanical drawings and a wonderful new set of color photos highlighting special features of trees such as fall foliage color, bark, flowers, or fruit. The book is very readable for laypersons but it has plenty of information for the professional. Leopold presents an information tidbit that this reviewer found absolutely fascinating: New York was only about 22 percent forested in 1921 when this book first was published versus about 62 percent forested now-- a real tribute to forest resource use in New York State. For private forest landowners, as well as students in traditional dendrology courses and forest practitioners. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. All levels. D. F.
