Trees and Shrubs of the Mariana Islands offers readers images and valuable information about 102 trees and shrubs that can be found around Guam and the Marianas. It is intended to serve as a guide to help the general public, school children, developers, and tourists identify, propagate/maintain, and learn about the natural history and uses of some of the more important trees and shrubs of the Mariana Islands. This is a revised edition of the book, which was originally published by Raulerson and Reinhart in 1991. The revised edition includes updated photographs, plant names and information and is printed to function as a field guide, with durable, laminated pages to withstand varying weather conditions.

Antonio de Pineda y Ramirez was both a military officer and scientist for the Spanish crown, being most famous for his botanical research. Heading the scientific expedition under the auspices of King Carlos III, he sailed across the world collecting data in different countries, which eventually lead him to the Mariana Islands in 1792. After spending twelve days on Guam, he observed both the geological and zoological aspects of Fort Santo Angel, a small fortification at the entrance to Umatac Bay. Shortly after his departure from Guam, he passed away, leaving behind valuable scientific information about the island.
