Trees of Nebraska

Cover of Trees of Nebraska publication.

This manual will show you how to identify 97 tree species by comparing leaves, twigs, fruit, bark, and other parts. You will learn how to look at and compare these parts and how to use a dichotomous key to identify species. Many of the species included in this manual are native to Nebraska, meaning they occur here naturally. Some are not native but are commonly planted. A few are naturalized; they are not native but have escaped cultivation and are growing in the wild.
