PINES WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME.
How do you guys tell them apart? I usually rely on the overall shape of the branch, and the alignment of the needles, but it isn't helping all too much.

Birches are fun, when you get their bark. :D
Well, mostly I rely on the number of needles per 'bundle.' That will narrow down the number of pines, so it will be easier to identify one specific tree. From there, branch orientation, bark, shape, or cones will be useful.
Mmmkay. That helps a lot, now onto counting needles..

Thank you. :)

You have the opposite of my problem... THERE'S SO MUCH I WANT TO PUT ON THEM, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIT THEM ALL.
Yay for last minute cheat sheet cramming... To save space...

For the tabs, is it 3 tabs per guide, 3 words per tab, or both? I find that the wording for the rules are unnecessarily vague.

Three words per tab. It would be unbelievably difficult to use a book with three tabs per guide! My partner and I have so many tabs, oh my gosh.

Erm... About the pines and telling the apart by needle amount, does anyone have a comprehensive list of this that I can memorize?

I thought it was three words for all tabs?

PicturePerfect,
I don't see what's wrong with that, I actually rather like the idea of the state having all of the trees from the National Tree list because it seems reasonable to go with those rules, as we'll be able to learn about trees from all across the country. And I love the national list! (Well, except for the copious and excessive number of pines... but oh well, they're pretty awesome too!)

I'm actually very jealous, I can't imagine trying to add another 100 trees in the month between States and Nationals. That might give you a competitive advantage, although I can imagine it's more difficult when you are trying to learn many trees you'e never encountered in your area.
