"...The writer has carefully avoided technical terms, except in the necessary regard of giving the definite botanical names, and has restricted himself to noting the broad characteristics of each species, in order to secure simplicity...".

"Be it remembered,..." (metaphorically opines the writer), "...however, that families of trees, like races of men, may vary greatly in their individuals..."

"Only the inland and mountain species of the California conifers are described in this book..."
