Trees of Yosemite (1932, 1948) by Mary Curry Tresidder


BIBLIOGRAPHY

The student of our trees will find three books on the subject particularly valuable: Hall’s Yosemite Flora, Jepson’s Trees of California, and Sudworth’s Forest Trees of the Pacific Slope.

The Yosemite Flora is the handbook of plants commonly in use for this region. As its material is limited to the Yosemite National Park, it is particularly helpful here. Its descriptions are brief and to the point, and it contains a very useful introduction to plant study in general and to the Yosemite flora in particular, with an explanation of many of the technical terms used in botanical works.

The Trees of California, is naturally more detailed in its study of trees. The articles on the genus Sequoia, the general information on forest conditions in California, and the stories of many of the common and specific names of our trees are most illuminating. If possible, the student of trees should also look into Jepson’s Silva of California, the monumental work on the subject, with its splendid illustrations. In our day, no book on California trees can appear without an acknowledgment of indebtedness to Professor Jepson, which is given herewith.

Sudworth’s Forest Trees of the Pacific Slope includes a still wider range of forest life. A government publication, it is a thorough study of the lives and habits of our trees, going into their variations under different climatic conditions, their range and occurrence, uses, and so forth, with a wealth of material.
