Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
When possible, the authors explain the necessity for alternative and less intrusive methods. Care for the environment is stressed as the primary concern, but Drake and Love address both sides of the issue.

An interesting and thorough introduction to the subject.

Children's Literature - Leslie Julian
Logs for the fireplace, paper for airplanes and school projects, the very houses in which we dwell we owe to wondrous trees. How often do we stop and think about how this happens and what the impact is on our environment? Cameron and his uncle do just that in this informational tour of the felling, harvesting, and replanting of trees and the equipment and manpower it takes to get the job done.
Kirkus Reviews
In a more successful entry in the America at Work series than Farming (see review, below), Drake and Love show how the demise of an ancient, beloved fir in a boy's backyard is the catalyst for an exploration of the logging industry and reforestation practices.
