Our objective at Forestry Press is to provide the most accurate information on Vermont's trees.
The book includes only the trees that are native to Vermont's forests or that were introduced and have since become part of Vermont's forests. Imported landscape trees, except in cases where they have become invasive and the dominant or co-dominant trees in the forest, have been excluded.
Forest Trees of Vermont has been designed for a variety of users:
High school students in botany or biology classes,
College students with environmental and forestry majors or who are just taking a dendrology course,
Children at Vermont's summer camps,
Vermont landowners seeking to learn more about their forest properties,
Consulting or country forests,
Scouts working for their merit badges
Tourists visiting Vermont to admire the brilliant color changes in fall and autumn or Vermont's beautiful trees in the spring, summer and winter.
(Forest Trees of Vermont is modeled after Forest Trees of Maine by the Maine Forest Service.)
