What People are Saying About This

Richard Ellis

I thought . . . that trees were so replete with variables that a field guide would be impossible. I hadn’t counted on Sibley’s genius with words and paint to turn the impossible into this brilliant, eminently useful, reality.--(Richard Ellis, author, Tuna: A Love Story )

Edward O. Wilson

A beautiful, masterful, and much-needed work that will henceforth be our guide to North American trees.--(Edward O. Wilson, biologist and ecologist, on The Sibley Guide to Trees )
