Does anyone know any good forestry guides? The ones I found at the library weren't very helpful.
i think Audubon field guides for information
but for good pictures, i would recommend NWF

(i don't think that for forestry, drawings would be helpful...i prefer pictures)
I like pictures, too, so I guess I'll use the NWF. Thanks!

I actually would prefer drawings, simply because photographs can be really messed up, like in the Audubon Guides, where one pinecone might be shown from a very close up angle, and another shows 5 or so pinecones from farther away. A good field guide would need consistency in how it portrays specimens, and this is more easily accomplished with pictures.

I think I'm going to get two guides as recommended by Cheesy Pie. Besides NWF, I'm going to get one for supplementary info. Which do you think is better for information, Sibley, or Audobon?

audubon
(look at my post before)

and maybe getting info off a trusted website for each species or getting them off an encyclopedia would be good :)

Hey everyone, I've just made the first Forestry practice test on the 2012 Test Exchange. It's based on the 2004 list.

Oh, that's amazing, NYLHVSSO. Thanks.

Sibley is very pictoral, and audbon isn't quite, but does anyone know how many species on the old list are actually in each book?

All of the species are contained between the eastern and western regions of the audobon, as the list was based off them. Sibley contains all but 9: Soaptree Yucca, Bebb Willow, Pacific Willow, Scouler Willow, Frosted Hawthorn, Blue Paloverde, Jumping Cholla, Red-osier Dogwood, and Kukui. NWF contains all but 4: Black Hawthorn, Frosted Hawthorn, Toyon, and Kukui.

Thank you. And Nylhvsso, can you show us the practice test?

Thanks for your reply.

For people who are going to use books that don't contain some of the trees, how are you going to deal with that? Are you just going to completely memorize those? Or would you just rather get a less practical field guide with all the trees?
