Trees of the Carolinian Forest
A Guide to Species, Their Ecology and UsesBook - 2003
An illustrated reference of selected Eastern North American trees.
This book identifies the 74 unique tree species of Canada's Carolinian Zone, the temperate stretch of southern Ontario. The unusually lush Carolinian Zone is the northernmost range of the lofty Tuliptree, the elusive Pawpaw, the flamboyant Black Gum, the brooding Butternut, the Magnolia, the Cucumbertree and many more deciduous species.
This book offers valuable advice on how to identify, preserve, use, and propagate each species, including important notes on the qualities of each species' wood, natural enemies, and value to wildlife. The Carolinian zone is rich in human population too -- one quarter of Canada's population resides here. The author tells us how we can protect and encourage these wonderful trees despite urban encroachment.
