Our Forests are Changing.
serious discussion of southern Appalachian hardwood forests by our good friend and neighbor Tom Dierauf. Tom is retired from the Virginia Division of Forestry, and is widely respected for his wisdom and generously-shared counsel. He remains an active leader of the Virginia Native Plants Society.
Don't be fooled bt the 1995 publication date. That is "recent time" in a forest.
More recently, Tom Dierauf and a number of his fellow retired foresters were instrumental in designing and constructing the magnificent new Demonstration Forest Trail at James Madison's home, Montpelier.
