Over the past couple of weeks, I have spent an unhealthy amount of time on Peeling Back The Bark, the wonderful blog of the Forest History Society (whose website and archives are just as good). The Forest History Society is a “nonprofit educational institution that links the past to the future by identifying, collecting, preserving, interpreting, and disseminating information on the history of interactions between people, forests, and their related resources — timber, water, soil, forage, fish and wildlife, recreation, and scenic or spiritual values.”
Yep. Sounds good to me.
From Forgotten Characters of Forest History (do you know Ev’rett The Forest Evergreen?) to the American Tree Farm archival documents, the whole site is the toppermost. Best way to experience it is to experience it, so click here.
