'What Tree is That?'

"What Tree Is That?", a pocket guide for identifying trees, is available from The National Arbor Day Foundation.
   The 84-page guide will help you identify 157 different trees found in the western U.S.
   Well-known trees are included: oaks, maples, firs, and pines. Also species such as golden chinkapin, and peachleaf willow, redbuds and redcedar, sycamore and saltcedar and sequoia and spruce. Dozens of drawings illustrate the trees' leaves or needles and their acorns, berries, seed pods, 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.
   To obtain your tree ID guide, send your name and address and $3 to "What Tree Is That?," The National Arbor Day Foundation, Nebraska City, NE 68410.
