  1. There’s nothing like a good tree book, except a free tree book. Thanks for the link to the Internet Archive.
    Two of my favorite tree books are a Natural History of Western Trees, and A Natural History of Trees of Eastern and Central North America. Both of them were written by Donald Culross Peattie, and I haven’t found any books as extensive or as interesting. The first copyrights are 1948 and 1950 with the last copyright in 1991. They are both available on Amazon used. For $15 dollars each you will have over 1300 pages of great tree history, and they’re worth every penny.
