This is the Tree ID book that I made for the first part of apprenticeship school years ago. It is by no means all of the trees that you will need to know, but it is a good starting point. This covers 48 common trees in this area. This book does not do justice to either bark or buds, so it may not be all that useful for winter identification.
The only way to properly learn your trees is out in the field. You will not learn that much from a book, regardless of how good the book is.Tree ID Book - Southwestern Ontario- PDF

For a comprehensive treatment of all the trees that grow in this area, please refer to “Trees In Canada” by John Laird Farrar. This book must be considered required reading.
