ESC-DSS Plant I.D. Guide

The ESC-DSS tool offers an option to input plant species that are present on a site.
By providing this information, the tool is able to produce more refined and accurate information for species planting options.

The library below offers I.D. guides for many of the key species included in the ESC tool.

The list is laid out in alphabetical order according to the scientific name of each plant, though common names are also included.

These ID guides are designed to be downloaded both induvidually and as a complete complilation booklet.
