Like all Peterson Field Guides, this is a thorough treatment of the identification of trees and shrubs and it's compact for taking with you in the field. It includes detailed recognition descriptions and the drawings compare similar species. However, like all Peterson Field Guides it has the irritating layout of separating the species descriptions from the drawings, making you constantly leaf back and forth. I had to subtract 1.5 stars for this!
