The Life of the Forest: Brochure

Resource URL:
Description: The forest is a complex community where trees and other plants and animals live in delicate balance. The pages in this beautifully illustrated booklet explore the growth process of trees, their role in the forest world, how trees can be utilized fully without waste, and how improvements can be made to their growth. The story begins with the development of a seed. Then we see how the trunk feeds and supports a growing tree, investigate the life history of a tree through its rings, and discover the uses of a single log, and much more.
