About this book

This book explores the roots and early history of professional forest management in Maryland and in Baltimore and how that history coincides with America's larger conservation impulse. Many of the ideas that began here gained regional and national attention. The book also examines the unique challenges that resource managers and citizens alike have faced in the past and must confront in the future -- in Maryland and across America -- if we are to secure the survival of our forest heritage. "As we look ahead to the next 100 years," concludes author Geoffrey L. Buckley, "it is imperative that we recognize the impact that our resource management decisions, land-use practices, and lifestyle choices have on our forest resources. Only then can we begin to plan more wisely for the future."

Media reviews
Geoff Buckley's book is at the juncture of two important strands of conservation history: rural forestry and urban tree management. The book does precisely what a book so situated should do: it brings the two subjects together by exploring their common roots, illuminating their common and unique problems, and showing how their histories are intertwined. Buckley's decision to use the career of Fred Besley as the spine of his story is inspired, for he was considered 'the dean of American forestry' at the time of his retirement. 'America's Conservation Impulse' is a well-written and handsomely illustrated narrative that moves along with justified assurance. I am very positive about the book.
- Ronald Foresta, Professor of Geography, University of Tennessee

"'America's Conservation Impulse' is well-researched and -written, interesting and engaging. Readers will enjoy how Dr. Buckley places the main narrative into a larger social context, connecting the past to the present with thoughts to what we face in the future."
- J. Morgan Grove, Northern Research Station, United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service
