The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of Our Most Essential Native Trees by New York Times best selling author Doug Tallamy. Shipping fee is included (within the contiguous US).
This book takes a magnifying glass to our mighty oak trees and the critical ecological role they play wherever they are planted. Tallamy guides the reader through a year of intricate food web interactions that are supported by this keystone species. Each chapter focuses on a single month, with several subheadings to help break up scholarly revelations and statistics with easy-to-understand explanations and witty storytelling. The appendices include valuable tips for choosing an appropriate oak for your area, as well as how to select and germinate an acorn, overwinter it, and protect a sapling for the best success in growing a strong, self-sufficient tree. From cover to cover, every page is a call to a single action: plant an oak!
