"I am really excited about being able to use this text in my forestry class. It has up to date material/references that have not been available to me in one text."
"I believe the topics outlined here addresses today's students' interest and knowledge in forest science, however at the same time challenges them to think outside the box when thinking about a career in the Forest Science field. I believe this text and manual provides more advantages than the competition in the quality of additional information and topics related to a high school education."
