Reviews & More About this Product

Selected as Library Journal's 2015 Notable Government Documents.

"Offering a beautiful layout and details for each geographic region, this massive summary of all of the various types of trees located throughout the United States is an extraordinary effort. Particularly helpful for current and future researchers is the detailed explanation of how the data was gathered and how the maps were created by the U.S. Forest Service staff."
