Seeing the Forest

Seeing the Forest Among the Treesis a personal statement, reflecting Herb Hammond’s love and knowledge of the forest and his disillusionment with current forestry practices. It presents a wide ranging discussion of many aspects of forests—such as ecology, economics, politics, and spiritual values—and examines these issues in a format readily understandable to the lay reader. Essentially a forest ecology text, it contains basic information about forests, not just as groups of trees, but as a living whole...as a complex web of interacting organisms.
