Mark Mikolas reads 'A Beginner's Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast'

Date & Time: 
Nov 10 2017 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm


Local author Mark Mikolas reads from his new book 'A Beginner's Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast' at 6pm on Friday, November 10 at Everyone's Books.
In this approachable field guide, writer and hiker Mark Mikolas shares a unique approach for year-round tree identification. His method, which centers on northeastern United States where 20 species make up the majority of trees, will prepare readers to recognize trees at a glance, even in winter when leaves are not present.
Mikolas's secret is to focus on the key characteristics of each tree - black cherry bark looks like burnt potato chips; spruce needles are pointed while balsam fir needles are soft and rounded at the ends, Some trees can even be identified by scent. Location maps for each of the 40 species covered and more than 400 photographs make the trees easy to identify. Mikolas also explains how to differentiate between similar and commonly confused trees, such as red maple and sugar maple.
'A Beginner's Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast is a book to keep close at hand wherever trees grow.'
As always this event is free and open to the public.
