Summary Like no other book currently available. "The Forests of Michigan explores the natural history, ecology, and economic importance of the rich and varied forests that cover over half of the state's 37.3 million acres. "The Forests of Michigan tells how the forests returned after the Wisconsin glacier retreated, and how they recovered from the onslaught of unrestrained logging and wildfire that virtually wiped them out. The emphasis of the book is a view of sustainability that builds not only upon the lessons learned from native peoples attitude and use of trees but also on the latest scientific principles of forest ecology and management. Written in an engaging style, "The Forests of Michigan sees the forest and the trees offering a hearty serving of information as well as many anecdotal delights.
