"North American Landscape Trees is valuable for two reasons. First, it is simply a superb compilation of taxonomic information. It is already my resource for correct nomenclature, particularly related to correct form and cultivar names. Second, the book provides Arthur Lee Jacobson's perspective on trees. Once again, we benefit from his knowledge, humor, and passion."

Jim Clark in Washington Park Arboretum Bulletin Winter 1996


"This hefty tome fits a unique niche in the gardening / horticultural library. Not many handbooks are devoted to trees alone, and this one does an encyclopedic job. I am impressed by the painstaking cataloguing of cultivars for such genera as cherries and oaks . . . This feature alone makes the book invaluable for the serious amateur and the professional horticulturist or landscape architect."

Art Kruckeberg in Douglasia Spring 1996


"The more I use this book, the more valuable I find it to be . . . It could well become the standard tree reference for retailers, nurseries, growers and designers over most of the United States."

Pat Roome in PlantSource Journal March/April 1996


"An identification guide for specialists and a collection of lore that will delight tree enthusiasts. Its descriptive and historical detail is unmatched."

Booklist July 1996


"For all these facts to be condensed into one manageable volume indicates a mammoth task of organized recording by the author."

Thomas Hall in Arboricultural Journal November 1996


"Do we need another book on landscape trees? Well yes, if it is as good as this mammoth compilation."

Rudolf Schmid in Taxon August 1996


"An invaluable reference and an astounding achievement."

George Waters in Pacific Horticulture Winter 1996


"A taxonomic tour de force! The most comprehensive current compendium of the history and nomenclature of the wide range of native and exotic trees cultivated in American landscapes"

Dr. Frank S. Santamour, Jr. in a pre-publication review




"American Horticultural Society Book of the Year Award."

Presented April 26, 1997
