Mexico has the greatest number of pine species of any country in the world. Because of the predominantly mountainous topography, the climates range from humid tropical on the narrow coastal plains of the south to cold temperate on the high mountains of the north to boreal on the high snow-capped peaks. This book brings together information from the author's 40 years of collecting trips, laboratory research, studies of herbarium specimens, and information published by botanists and foresters. All species and varieties are fully described. One particular feature is the very detailed directions to sites in the region where each species and variety may be found. There are distribution maps and more than 200 photographs of trees, leaves, and cones.

Who owns our forests? We do. And it's up to us to care for them. More than 10 million ordinary citizens own over half of the forestland in America. The vast majority of landowners want to do right by their land, but until now, there's been no single resource to help them do so.

Backyard Woodland also features tips for the financial considerations that come from land-owning, including how to save money on your taxes and how to make some extra income from responsible timber sales and viable farming. Owning a piece of the forest is a rare privilege, and this complete guide will help you get the most out of the experience.

Photographs at once stark and lush, tranquil and vibrant, dramatic and contemplative-- forests full of surprise.

For photographer Sean Kernan, "Among Trees" was born out of the simple act of photographing the groves and forests he saw as he worked, traveled, and lived in the world. As the shape of the work emerged, he began to wander further in search of these visions made of trees and light. After many years, he has collected these remarkable photographs and gained insight into the way that art takes us deep inside ourselves at the very same time that it calls us out into our world.

The fundamental act of seeing changed and enriched the photographer, just as the photographs in "Among Trees" will lead readers on a journey of their own.

This book is an invitation to experience all the anticipated pleasures of walking in the woods, the spiritual qualities of the deep forests, the near-operatic dramas of nature, our human connections with the natural world. As author Anthony Doerr writes in his introduction, "It is my hope that you turn the pages of this book and see something of the thousand landscapes around us-- to imagine not only what is inside Kernan's frams, but outside them as well." Because "Among Trees" is not so much about leafing through pictures of interesting and beautiful trees as it is about being "among" trees and coming to see our world and ourselves differently.
