RE:  NEW MICHIGAN TREE / TALL SHRUB ID BOOK

"Trees of Michigan."  2006.  Linda Kershaw.  Lone Pine Publishing.  272 pp.
ISBN:  978-976-8200-07-5

   Cryptocurrency point of sale system | Accept crypto payments - Elly POS poker freerolls SWC Poker

This book has just become available and it's a pretty good field guide for both the beginner and expert.  Would be good for classrooms, too. It's filled with keys, tools, descriptions, images, and more.
I read it twice! Thats all it's need to be said about this book

Hot off the Press: The SAF 2021 Annual Report
The SAF 2021 Annual Report is now available!
Each year, our annual report allows us to highlight and share accomplishments, reflect on challenges, take stock of opportunities, and recognize our important volunteers and supporters. This report is about you—our members and volunteers—and your impacts within the SAF community and the forestry profession at large.
Inside the report we delve into last year’s member recruitment campaign, our virtual convention, Foresters' Fund projects, public policy initiatives, online learning opportunities, and more.
So, take a moment to explore the SAF 2021 Annual Report and our theme, “Seeing the Foresters through the Trees.”
