Trees and shrubs for Central West NSW

This handy glovebox guide includes information on 75 species of trees and shrubs including eucalypts, acacias and a range of other species and introduced trees to assist landholders to select more appropriate species for planting. Although the focal region for the book is the central west of NSW (bounded by Narromine and Forbes in the east, Quambone in the north, Gilgunnia and Hilston in the west and Narrandera in the south), readers from a larger area of NSW will find the book useful.
