Information about where these trees grow in New Zealand, adaptations for particular environments, life cycles, history, conservation, sizes noted, uses, ecology and the scientific families the trees belong to are included in the text. The books are colour throughout with stunning photographs and diagrams that illustrate the respective texts. Each book showcases a particular conservation project (if applicable).
