Many hikers, bicyclists, and other travelers who love the outdoors are frustrated by heavy guide books that still don't simplify the task of identifying their favorite trees. The Ecopress Complete Guide to Native Conifers of the Pacific Northwest lightens their load both physically and mentally. This rugged laminated tri-fold card (8.5x11 inches, like a brochure) has all the information needed to identify all 33 species of conifers that inhabit the Northwest from extreme northern California to the southern portions of British Columbia.A built-in ruler and close up photos and illustrations of cones and needles combine with succinct descriptions for rapid identification. Trees are grouped into families and unique charateristics are highlighted with a bright blue font. Kids and adults can use this guide and easily slide it into a backpack, pocket, glovebox or notebook.
