This guide also includes a number of common non-native trees that have been naturalized in Arizona. This book makes no attempt to identify cultivated or nursery trees. 

Because this book is a unique all-photographic field guide just for Arizona, you won’t have to page through photographs of trees that don’t grow in the state, or attempt to identify live trees by studying black-and-white line drawings. 

With this famous field guide by award-winning author and naturalist Stan Tekiela, you can make tree identification simple, informative, and productive.

There’s no need to look through dozens of photos of trees that don’t grow in Arizona. Learn about 135 species found in the state, organized by leaf type and attachment. Just look at a tree’s leaves, then go to the correct section to learn what it is.

Fact-filled information contains the particulars that you want to know, while full-page photographs provide the visual detail needed for accurate identification.
