  1. The Man Who Planted Trees: The Story of Lost Groves, the Science of Trees, and a Plan to Save the Planet (Paperback) by Jim Robbins
    $16.00

    More than twenty years ago, David Milarch, a northern Michigan nurseryman, had a near-death experience in which he was shown an image of a devastated Earth: Its trees were dying, and without them, he was told, human life was in jeopardy. He was tasked with cloning the champion trees of the world--the strongest, oldest trees--and reintroducing their hardier genetics into our ailing forests as a way to combat climate change. When New York Times journalist Jim Robbins heard about Milarch's work, he was fascinated but had his doubts. Over the next few years, though, talking to scientists and traveling to the redwoods and sequoias with Milarch, Robbins came to realize how much we don't yet understand about trees: how they filter our air and water, how they communicate, why they die, and the myriad crucial ways they support life on Earth. The Man Who Planted Trees is both a gripping investigation into the cutting-edge science of trees and an inspiring lesson in how each of us can make a difference.
