ID that tree
The National Arbor Day Foundation wants to help the average person identify trees with ease.
A 72-page pocket guidebook, “What tree is that?,” helps distinguish different characteristics of many species of trees in New York state, as well as the Eastern and Central regions of the nation.
The booklet also offers dozens of detailed drawings that accurately illustrate the specific shapes and textures of different leaves, needles, acorns, berries, seed pods, cones and other features, the foundation said.
