This comprehensive landscape tree guide is the result of 10 to 15 years of performance data compiled from the study of deciduous and evergreen trees grown and evaluated at the CSU Arboretum located at the W.D. Holley Plant Environmental Research Center. In addition to photographs of most of the trees featured in the book, readers will find general characteristics, a summary of the main ornamental features and performance metrics of each tree. The book also contains several appendixes which list the trees by flower color, fruit color, landscape uses, mature size and fall color. This book is a useful and unique resource for the casual gardener as well as an invaluable resource for professionals who run nurseries and landscape companies.
