Roots - A Field Guide for Identification

  • A groundbreaking new field guide. Available in English for the first time.
  • Roots from 45 species of street and park trees with high resolution photos and detailed descriptions

By Kristin Moldestad and Olve Lundetræ


What do roots look like? Is it possible to find out in the field which tree species a root belongs to? The appearance of tree roots has barely been studied, but by increasing our knowledge and understanding, we can ensure that more trees are preserved. This book gives a unique insight into what the roots of different trees look like, exploring a hitherto little-described underground world.

Roots from 45 species of street and park trees are featured in photographs accompanied by descriptions of each example’s anatomical characteristics, habit and, in some cases, scent. The book is practically oriented and allows you to identify roots in the field, whether you are a professional or just curious about one of the most important parts of the tree – the underground system, where nutrients, water and oxygen exchange happen to create the basis for everything we see above ground.
