Ray... you'll find that there are ALOT of excellent books out there for identifying trees. Few years back I got interested in finding out what kind of trees exactly I had on my property. I picked up: "Trees of Pennsylvania-Field Guide" by Stan Tekiela. Excellant book. I"m sure there this is one similar for your neck of the woods. Since then I've also picked up
"Peterson Field Guides-Eastern Trees"
"Smithsonian Handbook-Trees"
and IMHO the best is
"National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees"....
