So i guess I'm taking this a little more serious than i though. I have added a new weapon to my arsenal, Just got my National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees Western Region from amazon.

Audubon makes fantastic books. I have the eastern tree book, and a wildflower book. Somewhere... I need to hunt them down. I've needed them a few times, but they're AWOL.

Itís great to have something to refer to.  I have 2 books that I use.  One I got for Christmas in 1985 from my parents and I read it all the time.  It is called Knowing Your Trees.  The other is something I ordered Silvics of North America - The Conifers.  It has less pictures and a lot more information.

My "go to" books. 
The middle one is local native trees, which are mostly NZ only (except a couple that have become weeds elsewhere). Mostly they would be total mystery trees to the rest of the world. We don't have the normal pine/fir type softwoods as natives (commonly planted, but not native).  And all but one of the broadleaf trees are evergreens. 

The "exotics" are trees the Nth Americans would be more familiar with. Trees from all over the world, with the main criteria being you are likely to see them in growing NZ.  So they have your pines / firs cedars etc in the "Conifers", and the oaks / maples etc in the "Broadleaves"




I've had the books out this week as I've been cutting some "mystery trees". I think they were Arborvitae, Arizona cypress and Lusitanica cypress. (as far as I can tell anyway)

I have 2,well one is a shrub book,not trees.
The tree one I get from the state of Maine. Has only trees from Maine. ;D  I have ordered a couple on line. They send me the book and than I send the money. I guess they must think all people from Maine are honest.
The shrub ones comes in handy too. That gets pulled out from behind me too. Both books are behind me now.
I kinda know my trees,but the latin names I don't. Lots of other information is in there too. Tells me where the biggest ones is in the state are.

MM,

You need to get the Native Trees of the Southeast book.  It is the very best for Southern trees.  And, you is Southern.  At least, last time that I checked :)

Looks like yellow birch.  Nip off a piece of that twig and see if it tastes like wintergreen.
