    Colorado State Forest Service also provides some resources.

    Looks like the one I had. I see this one was owned by one of the Hardy Boys. My brother took mine when he disappeared into the wilderness some time ago.

    The book that got me through college was "National Audobon Society Field Guide to N. Amer. Trees" Eastern Region. They make a Western Region too. The thing that helped me is the pictures organized by leaf type which is how most trees are identified. Identifying wood is difficult as many hardwoods have the same properties, softwoods too. Additionally, they will have the common flower and fruiting body that can be found so depending on the season, you should be able to identify the tree. Lastly, the back part gives species specific details associated with a particular tree.

    There are other books of course, but this one is my favorite. USDA Forest Service does a good job, but their stuff can be a bit "technical". The following website from TXAM is a simple key to help id species, http://texastreeid.tamu.edu/content/idByLeaf/

    Good luck.

    That children book is definitely one of the greatest allegories about life that every man post 40 will understand.

    I have one called PlantSnap, maybe it's the same one. I love the concept, but performance is spotty at best in my experience.

    If you have an iPhone there is an app by Apple called Snap Plant I believe.
    May be easier than carrying around a book.

    A little smaller and less detailed is the Arbor Day Foundation’s “What Tree is That?” It is still good for common trees. Just a side note, don’t buy it directly from them and get on their mailing list.☹️ Here is a link to one bookstore’s copy: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/wha...ion/1112389130

    This is a great guide. They use to have a book guide app which was easy to use but they stopped updating it, at least on iOS, and it is no longer downloadable as far as I know.
