Here are the trees of the Southeast in all their beauty and variety. Wilbur and Marion Duncan's field guide makes it possible for amateurs as well as professionals to identify any of the region's trees, from the common loblolly pine and red mulberry to the rare Pinckneya (fever-tree), goat willow, and the escaped exotic Chinese chestnut. The Duncans' guide includes every species of tree known to occur in the region, from the Coastal Plain to the highest elevations. It includes trees native to the region as well as those introduced and now reproducing.
