This vibrant and large map of the world was published by Rand McNally around 1970, based on the absence of an independent Bangladesh and UAE. Despite the ongoing progress of decolonization, numerous Pacific and Caribbean islands and several African territories remain under the control of European powers and are labeled as such.

Surrounding the map is a border comprised of illustrations of nearly fifty different species of trees from around the world. Each is accompanied by a range of heights, a scientific name, and a brief description. An interesting, though perhaps appropriate, choice of content considering the map was issued as a promotional piece by Homelite, a brand of chainsaws.
