   The third volume of the book is focused on conifer shapes. I separated the conifers according to certain criteria. There is a chapter on the fastigiated conifers. Another chapter focuses on conifers that are pendulous. A third chapter looks at conifers which grow prostrate. There are some weeping conifers that are prostrate and others that are prostrate but rise up for a while and then lay back down. I had to decide where to put some of those cross-over types. The reader may not agree with all of my choices, but I did my best. The rest of the conifers grouped by shape are the "cones, globes, and pyramids". They have their own chapter in Volume Two. I did not sort by growth rate.
