Forestry Alumnus Authors Book on Ancient Forests

Book cover for Ted Reuschel

1964 Michigan Tech grad Ted Reuschel spent some 10 years following his 37-year career with the Michigan DNR gathering and organizing material about the fascinating world of trees, and an in-depth, yet easy-reading review of ancient uses of trees and wood.

Read about some of the most unusual trees in the world, and then focus in on the ancient “cradle of civilization” to see how trees were cut, moved, and fashioned into useful products. Learn about the famous cedars of Lebanon, as well as the earliest use, abuse, protection and management of Mediterranean-area forests.
