Timber and Forest Products

by Jane P. Gardner

About 17 percent of the forests on Earth are located in North America. From 3,000-year-old sequoias to tiny saplings, trees provide homes for animals as well as products and recreation for humans. Whether you're interested in herbs or syrup, in hunting or camping, you'll find what you are looking for in the forest. The countries of North America have always had plentiful natural resources. But the exploitation of these resources comes at a cost, and in certain cases, some have wondered if that cost is too high. North American Natural Resources explores all facets of this most-vital aspect of our economy. Readers will investigate the natural history, human use, technology, environmental issues, and economic significance of the most significant resources on the continent.
