Review By: SA Garden - February 2009

This is one book you do not want to leave at home on your travels! Photo Guide to Trees of Southern Africa is a sturdy and invaluable identification and reference guide to 30- of the more common tree species in the region, both native and naturalized. This revised edition of the popular guide has full-colour photographs illustrating growth form, flowers, fruit and bark of the various species, as well as up-to-date distribution maps showing the range of each species in southern Africa. You will also find information on habitat preference of each species and uses by man. The guide also shows how you can distinguish between similar and closely related species. Introductory chapters on biomes and trees, fruit trees, furniture and craftwork, medicinal and poisonous trees, trees and animals and the architecture of trees make this a well rounded guide.
