This comprehensive and compact volume is a field guide to all the native and naturalized trees of the north Texas zone, including the Blackland Prairies, the Cross Timbers region, and both the Rolling and High Plains. Here too is detailed information on the many varieties of trees introduced into the Dallas-Fort Worth region over the twentieth century. Drawn from Robert A. Vines' monumental Trees, Shrubs, and Woody Vines of the Southwest (University of Texas Press, 1960), the field guide contains full descriptions of every tree in the area. Its convenient organization makes Trees of North Texas ideal to take into the field for on-the-spot identification, and virtually every description is accompanied by a finely executed illustration. Fascinating bits of history and lore enliven the descriptions throughout.
