Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Here in the Deep South, disturbance events are a part of our lives. We have grown accustomed to, if not accepting of, wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, pine beetles, floods, and droughts, and so have our forests. That may be the most singular strength of Alabama’s forests. They are amazingly resilient, withstanding the ravages of man and nature. They have generally persevered through repeated assaults from Mother Nature, saws and axes, and even the plow. . . . Discovering Alabama Forests uses the past as prologue, fostering an appreciation of what we have now and might have in the future, and what the loss of our forests would mean for us all. It is a powerful testament to the legacy of our landscape.”—From the Foreword by Rhett Johnson

“This book is an excellent educational resource and overview history of Alabama forests . . . valuable to lay readers but also to professional resource managers, educators, and students.”—Dean Gjerstad, Auburn University and The Longleaf Alliance
