Arbor Foundation offers tree guide


A pocket guide for identifying trees, “What Tree is That?,” is available for $3 from the National Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410.

The 72-page guide will help identify 135 different trees found in the eastern and central United States.

Well-known trees such as oaks, maples, spruces and pines are included. Also, species such as horsechestnut and mockernut hickory, sassafras and shadbush, persimmon and pawpaw and pagodatree and pecan are listed.


Dozens of drawings illustrate the trees’ leaves or needles and their acorns, berries, seedpods, cones, and other identifying features. “What Tree is That?” is organized to make it easy to identify trees in a simple step-by-step fashion.

“Helping people enjoy and appreciate trees is central to the educational mission of the Arbor Day Foundation,” John Rosenow, the Foundation’s president, said. “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.”

Guides may also be purchased online at www.arborday.org.
