Microcosm Publishing & Distribution - Journeys of Trees: A Story about Forests and the Future

Though we tend to think of forests as stationary biomes, the trees within are actually mobile and even somewhat restless. So any time a tree dies, or a new one begins the grow, the forest shifted jut a bit. When many new trees grow in the same direction, the forest begins to migrate. This helps protect forests from threats, but modern obstacles such as logger, climate change, and pests transported through global trade are threatining these slow moving tree communities. The Journeys of Trees focuses on five types of trees: giant sequoia, ash, black spruce, Florida torreya, and Monterey pine and includes encounters with activists, biologists, and foresters. Without these forests, survival is much harder for our species and our planet.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
