Choukas-Bradley (USDA Graduate School; Audubon Naturalist Society) offers an updated guide to the 300-plus species of native and exotic trees that can be found in the nation's capital. Originally published in 1981, and revised in 1987, the text includes an introductory overview describing how Washington, D.C. became known as the City of Trees; a guide to tree-viewing sites around the Mall, outlying areas of the District and beyond; a botanical guide illustrated with b&w drawings; an illustrated glossary; and a monthly blooming calendar. The fully revised and updated third edition includes a new foreword by the Washington Post's garden editor, Adrian Higgins; inclusion of new landmarks where trees play a vital role; an increase in the number of tree species listed; and additional descriptions of lesser-known natural areas in and around the city where trees can be enjoyed in their native habitat.
