Forestry examines all aspects of the industry, from the planting of new seedlings to the inner workings of a sawmill and a pulp and paper mill. This engaging picture book uses a combination of fact and fiction to introduce young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in one of America's most important resource-based industries.

An interesting and thorough introduction to the subject.
