Landis Arboretum has had the great good fortune to be associated with one of the area's true human treasures - Ed Miller. Ed has spent many years learning and loving the natural features of our Upstate New York area, and those years have culminated in two booklets that are of great value to anyone trying to learn about those trees and plants that are native to our area. Through the generosity of Ed and of ECOS: The Environmental Clearinghouse, two booklets have been made available to Landis Arboretum to be offered in PDF form as membership benefits. The first is Trees and Shrubs of the Capital Region of New York State: A Guide to Species Identification and the second is Ferns of the Capital Region of New York State: A Guide to Species Identification. The fern book is illustrated (in color, in the PDF version). Both booklets are also available in print form from the Arboretum for $5.00 each. For more information on purchasing a copy, please call the Arboretum at (518) 875-6935.
