MEDIA REVIEWS
This is solid stuff - a comprehensive, factual review of why the boreal forest, which covers much of Canada, northern Europe, and Russia, benefits more from clear cutting than from selection harvesting, a program favoured by some. In a constructive and non-confrontational way, Mac Squires, a professional forester with decades of experience working in Canada's boreal forests, examines how the trees in the forest reproduce, grow, and react to intervention - by natural disturbance and by humans - using all of this to explain his carefully considered position. For anyone interested in the health of the forest, I urge you to read this book. * Michael R. Innes, former Vice-President Environment, Abitibi-Price *
Never been in the boreal forest, or even if you have, take this instructive tour through the eyes and mind of one of Canada's most perceptive and knowledgeable professional foresters. * Ken Armson, former Provincial Forester, Ontario *
A clear, accessible narrative ... an interesting companion read alongside The Hidden Life of Trees, by Peter Wohleben. * The Chronicle-Journal *
