With those species you must live in the NE?

One of best books I've seen for the forest owner is "Woodland Ecology-
Environmental Forestry for the  Small Owner" by Leon S. Minckler,
published by Syracuse U. Press, 1980. I'm not sure if it's still in
print, but if you or anyone else finds that it is in print, please let
us know.

I like this book so much I once thought I'd buy a dozen or so and just
give them to my "key" clients, until I remembered that I'm cheap. <G>

The book has excellent drawings and photos. Now, if it's no longer in
print, it would be great if they could put this entire book up as a web
