YOUR FORESTS by Martha Renaley Brur


Email this review


A readable, well-documented book on the forests of North America, how they grow, and seeding themselves, spread, how nurseries are run and the seeds given artificial stimulus to hasten their growth...the extraction of more than a hundred products from wood, the story of plastics, the different kinds of forests, famous forest fires and the fire fighter and his job, the harvesting with interesting details on different jobs in lumbering, the role of the forests in flood prevention, and the training in Forest Service, with a final chapter on ""What is Ahead?"" Extremely well written for all interested in conservation, with a definite vocational slant.
