Reviews / Endorsements

“This book constitutes a big and bold salvo in the already contentious battles over the value of extensive uncut forests and the ecological effects of significant clearcuts. It is written by highly respected experts, and the goals of the book and of the forest management they advocate are clear—that more wildlife species are better.”Northern Woodlands

A comprehensive look at how forested properties can be managed to benefit wildlife and to be sources of forest products in a responsible manner.”Portland Press Herald

“Useful resource for land trusts and woodlot owners looking to develop their own management plans.”Northeastern Naturalist, vol. 3 no.1

“If there is one fact the book brings home it is that forests are always changing, and that the operative word may well be diversity.”The (Milford, NH) CABINET

“This is the book landowners, foresters, and others have been waiting for. DeGraaf and Yamasaki have merged their encyclopedic knowledge of New England wildlife and habitat with the legendary silvicultural expertise of Bill Leak. The concepts of habitat management through silvicultural prescription are abundantly illustrated with relevant photography, as well as vivid computer graphic visualizations by Anna Lester that show changes through
time across landscapes. More than just a text book on habitat and silvicultural application, this book provides important background on land use history and ecology of the northeast. This book will be useful to landowners considering their alternatives, and managers making decisions or needing to explain them.“
David B. Kittredge, Extension Forester / Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts - Amherst
