About this book

Provides a comprehensive description of the region from which in the future most of the US' wood for housing and paper will be grown and harvested. It provides the information for practicing foresters, researchers, and students to dramatically increase forest growth for the many forest types and in the various subregions without detrimentally affecting soil, species diversity, or long-term aesthetics.
