"The colour photographs in this book - more than 1,500 of them - constitute the finest and most comprehensive record of the native trees of New Zealand ever achieved [. . . ] Here is the essence - and the reality - of our native forests." This was the finest single work on New Zealand's native trees for many years after time of its first publication in 1980. Though still a very good reference, the claim to being the most comprehensive record is now superceded by the publication in 2011 of the even larger work "New Zealand's Native Trees" by John Dawson & Rob Lucas (Nelson: Craig Potton Publishing.)
