Timber in the Working Forest
by Mary A Livingston, Tim Livingston
Tat-a-tat-pat the woodpecker sounds. Whirrrrrr-irrrrrr-boop-boop-boop the biologist radio tunes. Rhrrr. Rhrr. The chainsaw grunts. The working forest is abuzz with activity as foresters, scientists, and
loggers work together for a healthy forest. Wildlife biologists study the animals. Botanists study the plants. Archaeologists study human history. Foresters pull it all together for a plan to take care of the forest. Loggers follow the plan to harvest trees for wood. Ecological balance and sustainability are their focus when harvesting trees for wood. Written in a light, lyrical style, “Timber in the Working Forest” is a fun and lively read.
