    Lloyd C. Irland
In the first book to review the nature of the Northeast's forests, their significance, and policy issues for a general audience, Lloyd Irland tells the story of the changing forests of the nine northeastern states. He reviews their history from the original European settlements through the age of shipbuilding to the retreat of farming and regrowth of the forest in the twentieth century. Emphasizing the continuity of the history and varied uses of the forests, the work summarizes the forces shaping past farming and land abandonment, forest cutting practices, insects, winds, diseases, and land development patterns.
