Seeking the Wolf Tree by Natalie Cleavitt


Seeking the Wolf Tree by Natalie Cleavitt

Old-time New England foresters coined the term wolf tree for trees they saw as having the ability to eat the sun and nutrients and prevent the growth of other trees. Today, however, we understand how wolf trees benefit wildlife. Join Aurora and Orion as they search for a wolf tree in the in the 3,160 hectare Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, looking for such clues as a large trunk, low branches, wildlife activity, and nearby smaller trees.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
