Forest Trees of Australia is the essential reference for observing, identifying and obtaining information on the native trees in this country. It describes and illustrates over 300 of our most important indigenous trees, which have been carefully selected for their environmental significance, their importance to the timber industry, or their prominence in our landscape.

This new and thoroughly revised edition has been fully updated throughout and includes treatments of 72 additional species. New maps and photographs show us a wonderfully diverse range of forests, from mangrove swamps, tropical regions and deserts, to alpine areas and majestic stands of temperate forests. A colour section illustrates some of the major forest types of Australia and bark from a diverse range of species.

Forest Trees of Australia is an unsurpassed guide to identification for horticulturists, botanists, foresters, students, farmers, environmentalists and all those who are interested in our native trees.


  • New edition of a trusted, best-selling reference.
  • Includes a substantial number of new species descriptions—over 25% more than the previous edition—covering eucalypts, acacias, melaleucas and a treatment of the Wollemi pine.
  • Fully updated throughout, with the latest classification, climate, distribution and usage information.
  • Richly illustrated with black and white plates and two colour sections.
