This book enables easy identification of every tree and shrub common to the Maritimes. It includes detailed visuals showing tree shape, leaf shape and colour, seed and cone size and bark texture. With illustrations and key ID features, a tree can be identified in any season of the year.

Using this book, everyone can get acquainted with the trees and shrubs in their backyards and neighbourhoods. The visuals inspire wonder at the beauty and complexity of the world of trees.

Author and illustrator Jeffrey C. Domm spent many weeks tracking down examples of each tree to create illustrations that go far beyond anything seen in common tree guides with detail and clarity.

Featured trees include: spruce, pine, cedar, birch, maple, oak, ash, beech, elm, aspen, willow and poplar, as well as the boreal species of spruce, pine, tamarack and fir. The shrubs include dogwood, cranberry, sumac, elderberry and pussy willow.

A section on heritage species includes details of the oldest red spruce in the world, found in Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, as well as the largest surviving American chestnut tree in the world, found near Halifax.

JEFFREY C. DOMM has had a lifelong fascination with nature and wildlife. He is a distinguished illustrator of wildlife and nature and teaches illustration at Halifax's NSCAD university. He has illustrated more than twenty wildlife books, including the best-selling Pocketguide to East Coast Nature and East Coast Birds. He lives in Cow Bay, Nova Scotia.
