Trees of the Garden Route: Mossel Bay to Storms River is meant for people curious about trees of the Garden Route, focussing on the area spanning from Mossel Bay to Storms River, whether they are experienced botanists or amateurs. Make your hike through the forest more meaningful, the more you know about plants, birds, insects, mammals and the environment, the better you will be able to appreciate what you see. The unique tree key which is used in the book is very visual and was developed by Elna Venter, a tree enthusiast who served on the Central Committee of the Dendrological Society of Southern Africa intermittently between 2000 and 2011. She was also a member of the local committee of the Outeniqua branch of the society. The book contains information about 110 trees, including 1800 colour photographs, which makes it easy to ascertain that you have arrived at the right conclusion after identifying a tree with the help of the key. The Afrikaans and English common names as well as the South African tree number is listed below the scientific names.
