Dendrology is defined as the scientific study of trees. Our Manual of Dendrology is an essential tool for anyone interested in learning more about forest trees in Jamaica. It contains 150 economically important forest trees found in Jamaica, mostly native, each illustrated with full-color photos of flowers, fruit, leaves, bark and form. It includes botanical descriptions, species habitat, glossary, illustrated terminology, and index.
The manual is the most comprehensive of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean and is suitable for aiding both the amateur dendrologist and the professional with tree identification.
Manuals of Dendrology are available at Forestry Department offices for $3,000.00
