Sitka spruce, the largest of the world's spruces, is animportant component of British Columbia's coastal forests. Itsecology gives it a special place in the sustainable management of theprovince's forests. However, in west coast forestry it is poorlyknown in comparison with its main coniferous companions -- Douglas-fir,western redcedar, and western hemlock. As an important internationalforestry resource, it is crucial that Sitka spruce -- its ecology andthe ecosystems in which it occurs -- be clearly understood by those whoare involved with its management.

The book is a comprehensive treatment of the basic biology and management issues of Sitka spruce, placed in geographic, ecological and economic context ... the book is full of detailed and worthwhile information. It is certain to be of great practical value to anyone concerned with management of Sitka spruce within its natural range. -- Steven A. Acker * Northwest Science, Vol. 72, No. 1 1998 *
... a comprehensive reference book full of facts.... The figures.... show a good range of subjects and illustrate the points well... most readable... I think that the book should be read by all Sitka spruce growers and should be on the reference bookshelf of every organisation which deals with Sitka spruce on a regular basis. Although aimed at North American readers, it contains a wealth of information relevant to us too. * Quarterly Journal of Forestry 92 (4), 1998 *
What a treat .... I considered suggesting that not only should every British and Irish forestry practitioner and student purchase a copy of this book but that it should be liberally placed on hotel bedside tables....every forester should at least have a look at it at some time. * Forestry, Vol. 72:1, 1999 *
