Branching Out: How Trees Are Part of Our World
by Joan Marie Galat
Without trees, we would not have paper, houses, furniture, fruit, or maple syrup! Without trees, animals would not have shelter, food, nests, or water. Branching Out takes a close look at eleven different trees like banyan, baobab, scotch pine, or downy birch. Clear photographs showcase each tree, followed by text describing the tree's usefulness to people and animals. With maps, interesting tree facts, and conservation advice, readers will come away with more appreciation for trees.
