What People are Saying About This

Tim Fahey
I use Forest Trees of the Northeast, edited by Lassoie, et. al., as a resource for my course on Woodlot Management at Cornell University. This volume is unique compared with dendrology texts or field guides in providing both the basic tree characters for identification as well as colorful descriptions of cultural ecological and economic features of each species. Students found it a valuable resource for the course, and I consult it regularly for a variety of purposes. Professor, Department of Natural Resources, Cornell University
Rene H. Germain
Forest Trees of the Northeast is a comprehensive, user-friendly resource well suited for forest landowners throughout the northeast. State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry
Michael Virga
I thoroughly enjoy the content and format of this unique reference, Forest Trees of the Northeast. Ideal for professional resource managers, field foresters, students and landowners alike, this guide provides excellent material in a well thought out, readable fashion. The section on products and uses is particularly interesting and contains information specifically relating to each species, history and associated folklore. Users of this book will find they will refer to it often and come away from it with exactly the information they need.

Anyone interested in learning more about trees must have Forest Trees of the Northeast. The detailed descriptions of leaves, twigs, flowers, fruit, and bark will make you more familiar with the trees that you recognize and help you identify those your don't already recognize. You will learn what to expect in different seasons and as the tree ages. The book describes 27 of the most common trees and provides information on the site and growing characteristics of each. The habitat and life history sections are a necessity for those that like to propagate and plant their own trees. For those who already have a forest, the sections on pests and management will help increase the potential value of timber. The descriptions of products and uses is entertaining and beneficial to students and scouts.
