Description

Trees tell the story of a city. Vancouver has one of the world’s greatest urban forests. Vancouver Tree Book is the key to a living laboratory unlike anywhere else on Earth.

 

Slim enough to fit into a pocket yet filled with detailed descriptions and hundreds of colour images, this Living City Field Guide is designed for outdoor use. Bring it with you anywhere you go to discover the quiet giants living among us. Maps to 10 Tree Tour walks will help you get going.

 

More than 110 of Vancouver’s important species are profiled. Identification tips describe the size, shape, leaves, bark, flowers and more. Stories explain the history and culture behind the trees that define the city. Meant for all levels from enthusiastic beginner to professional arborist.
