Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Ontario?s old-growth forests are incredibly varied, from thousand-year-old cedars hanging off cliffs, to pine trees over 13 storeys tall. This guidebook leads explorers through these tree colonies with maps and directions, while, just as importantly, providing readers with a deep understanding of old-growth forest ecology. This new edition introduces more sites in southern Ontario, including urban old-growth forests, existing but a bus or bike ride from millions of people. Also included is an expanded chapter on forest conservation, which offers solutions in the face of today?s many, many threats to our forests.
