RE:  NEW MICHIGAN TREE / TALL SHRUB ID BOOK

"Trees of Michigan."  2006.  Linda Kershaw.  Lone Pine Publishing.  272 pp.
ISBN:  978-976-8200-07-5

www.lonepinepublishing.com

This book has just become available and it's a pretty good field guide for both the beginner and expert.  Would be good for classrooms, too. It's filled with keys, tools, descriptions, images, and more.

NRAES Offers New Book on "The Woods in Your Backyard"

Virginia's Natural Resource Agricultures and Engineering Service has announced the publication of The Woods in Your Backyard, a book that promotes the stewardship of small parcels of land for the personal enjoyment of the owners and improved environmental quality for society. It is written for owners of 1-10 acres of forested land as well as owners who are interested in turning grassy or lawn-areas into forest. The first four parts (Introduction, Inventory Your Property, Ecological Principles, and Put Your Knowledge into Practice) describe concepts necessary to fulfill land management goals for your property. Part five is a workbook with blank activity sheets designed to apply the lessons in parts I-IV to your own land.

For more information, or to order a copy, visit the NRAES website.

Timber Industry Publication

Our own MDNRE Anthony Weatherspoon has co-authored a USFS bulletin titled "Michigan Timber Industry: An Assessment of Timber Product Output and Use." Take a peek for yourself: http://www.nrs.fs.fed.us/pubs/rb/rb_nrs42.pdf.  71 pages. 

Abstract
Presents recent Michigan forest industry trends; production and receipts of industrial roundwood; and production of saw logs, veneer logs, pulpwood, and other products in 2006.  Logging residue generated from timber harvest operations is reported, as well as wood and bark residue generated at primary wood-using mills and disposition of mill residues.
