Tennessee is a place of remarkable contrasts in landscapes, as it stretches from high Appalachian peaks to the bottomlands of the Mississippi River. Much of the state is covered in hardwood forest, with species such as beach, maple, oak, hickory, and state tree Tulip Poplar. Bald-cypress swamps in the bottomlands are rich in aquatic and semi-aquatic plants. The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been running for over seven decades. There is no shortage of opportunities for learning about the thousands of plants that grow in the Volunteer State. The challenge is knowing where to start. It helps, then, to have a portable reference like Tennessee Trees & Wildflowers dedicated to a smaller group of representative species. This handy resource features beautiful illustrations of 140 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 the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who are keen to make deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its plant life.
