Welcome to Jill and Olivia’s guide to deciduous trees of the Northeast!

The trees you will find in this website are all trees that we have encountered on field excursions in Massachusetts for our Field Biology class at Brandeis University. The photos were all taken by Olivia Siegel during late summer and fall of 2005 (except where noted).
