This new re-written edition of the best-selling NZ classic Which Native Tree? now includes comprehensive ecological information on the tree and its environment.
As well as the known uses of each plant, from snow sandals, hair ties, combs, whistles, baskets and dyes, to food, medicine and timber, it also explains how to grow each plant in your own garden.
Use Andrew Crowe's unique leafy key to confidently identify the shrubs, climbers, perching plants and groundcovers of New Zealand's native forest. Colour photographs of leaves and associated creatures, graphics giving plant shape and height, plant distribution maps and ID checklists listing distinguishing features are all helpful tools to identify New Zealand's native trees.
