“Western North America includes the tallest, largest, and oldest trees in the world. These trees inspire visitors from around the world with their beauty and majesty, but not until now has a single, concise volume appeared that identifies these trees and describes their distribution. “Conifers of the Pacific Slope” is a valuable companion to anyone exploring the forests and woodlands of this vast region.” –Christopher Earle, author of The Gymnosperm Database
