Hello all,

I am looking for twig and bud keys that identify North American trees, by
family and by genus.  I have a number of winter keys, but they tend to
address woody plants in general and therefore include a lot of species
that are "unnecessary" for my purposes. I would also like to hear about
keys that have been "computerized".

Please respond directly to me with your favorites; I will summarize and
post to the list(s). I have cross-posted to bionet.plants,
bionet.agroforestry, and
