More than half of Pennsylvania is covered in forests, most of it being rich hardwood with trees such as maple, beech, and oak. In dry, upland areas, towering state tree Eastern Hemlock grows, as do several species of pines. Wet, low-lying areas are dominated by willows, dogwoods, and alders. At higher altitudes in the Appalachians, state flower Mountain-laurel dazzles in the spring. There are more than 3,400 vascular plants in the Keystone State, making it a great place to explore and learn about flora. Such a high diversity can make botanical study challenging, so it helps to have a portable reference to focus on a smaller group of representative species. You can do this with the beautifully illustrated Pennsylvania Trees & Wildflowers, which includes over 100 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is handy tool for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its plant life.
