“Amateur naturalists, professional scientists, and landowners in Iowa and beyond—in fact, tree lovers everywhere—will enjoy this much-anticipated update of a widely used classic. There is no better way to learn about the surprising diversity of trees in our prairie state than to have a copy of this book in your library or preferably in your hands while exploring woods, fields, backyards, and roadsides. Peter van der Linden and Donald Farrar have once again combined their talents, knowledge, and love of natural history to renew this enduring reference.”—John Pearson, ecologist, Iowa Department of Natural Resources
