Offering both a natural survey and a series of tips to gardeners and landscape architects Feb. 14 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Arboretum Borealis: a Lifeline of the Planet describes how the Boreal tree group is key to the planet's health, and how they can promote health and counteract the effects of global warming. Chapters pair a natural history of the North American tree group with a survey of aboriginal peoples and their interactions with forests, offering both a natural survey and a series of tips to gardeners and landscape architects interested in incorporating these trees in their designs for a greener planet. Black and white and color photos complete the display.
Another Tour de Force by author of "Arboretum America" and "The Global Forest" March 14 2014
By Carolyn Jerard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is always a pleasure to read a book by Diana Beresford-Kroeger, with her wide knowledge of botany, biochemistry and ancient herbal wisdom. Anyone with an interest in the environment (particularly trees) will find her books very informative, and will realize how much research remains to be done on the wealth of natural resources we are now so often in the process of destroying, without realizing what a self-inflicted loss we are causing to medicine, civilization and our common environment.
In her own words, "The circumpolar Boreal forest is the crown of the planet. It is the only inheritance of every living child born today because it is our environment, To speak of its coming down is a disgrace that is no less than a disaster. What will the world think of Canada when we will deal with the Boreal forest in exactly the same manner as the Amazon[?] To cut the Boreal is an act of genocidal vandalism in these days of climate change and global warming."
