Riassunto: San Francisco is home to an amazingly diverse and exciting urban forest. Mike Sullivan shares his enthusiasm for San Francisco's trees in engaging and nontechnical descriptions, stories, photographs, and a series of walking tours. Natives and tourists alike will enjoy the chance to learn not only about the city's trees, but also about historical and environmental forces that have shaped the San Francisco we know.
Dal risvolto interno: Mike Sullivan never met a tree he didn't like—well,almost—in San Francisco. When he visited the city in 1983, the trees captivated Sullivan, an upstate New Yorker more familiar with maples and birches than with eucalyptus and gingkoes. He also fell in love with the city itself and its captivating neighborhoods. He found the perfect way to share these passions in "The Trees of San Francisco," a great way for residents and tourists alike to enjoy the city from a new perspective, beyond the bridges and cable cars.
Sullivan acquaints readers with the trees in a reader-friendly manner. He details over seventy of San Francisco's most common and interesting trees, and indicates good places to view them; color photographs of the trees are included. Along the way, he introduces botanical insights, punctuates the discussion with thirteen sidelights (did you know there is a community of parrots living in San Francisco?), and provides touches of local color.
Sullivan also takes us on seven detailed and enjoyable walking tours—an easy-to-use, full-page color map accompanies each tour—providing a most gratifying outdoor experience in the middle of the urban environment. If that's not enough, he groups San Francisco's best trees and their locations within twenty-five selected neighborhoods, and includes check-off boxes so you can be sure youve viewed them all.
