For the more advanced naturalist submitted by FordAlpha on July 8, 2018, 11:17pm This is an advanced field guide, not written for the casual layperson. However, there are some great diagrams of flower parts and descriptive terms in the introductory section that will help a motivated beginner learn the technical terminology, and the entries feature clear line drawings showing the major identifying features of each tree species. This guide uses dichotomous keys for identification. Using dichotomous keys takes some practice, but ultimately leads to more confident identifications compared to the usual thumb-through visual ID method of layperson's field guides.
