Can you distinguish between a pinnately and palmately compound leaf, or between a denately serrate and double serrate edge? This 16-page publication contains clear descriptions and illustrations of the common leaf and bark characteristics used in identifying trees, such as leaf shape, type, arrangement, and edges. Identifies trees by both common and scientific names, with detailed line drawings of the 66 most common trees found in Alabama, from the blackjack oak and shagbark hickory to the Atlantic-white cedar and southern catalpa.
