List of Trees

barnhardt9999(8a)September 9, 2013

Does anyone know where I can find a list of trees or field guide sorted by prevalence?

I would prefer one for the NC piedmont but I would be happy with the Southeast or entire country if that's all that is available.

prevalence to what???

i would suggest you start with your county extension/soil conservation or Ag office..

and ask them for a referral to the state forestry division ...

presuming you are talking NC prevalence ...

There are hundreds of books on trees at your library or on Amazon, and so many will have trees listed by common and/or Latin names if only in the bibliography at the back, tho' likely also throughout the books alphabetically and in the front index. Some should be titled with regional names.

There is a terrific book about the native flora in this area: Wildflowers and Plant Communities of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont: A Naturalist's Guide to the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia by Timothy Spira, 2011. Trees are a component of the plant communities.

OK, I've located my copy of Spira's book. The plant communities described for the Piedmont include: River Bluff Forest, Alluvial Forest, Basic Mesic Forest, Old Hickory Forest and Xeric Hardpan Forest. For each of these, between 12 and 17 canopy dominants and understory trees are described.

The Southern Appalachians and Piedmont are rich in tree species, especially hardwoods, as compared to our Pacific Northwest forests.

Are you looking for something like this or something else entirely?
