New Brunswick is home to more than five billion trees, many native to the Acadian forest and some exotics introduced by settlers. For this new edition of The Great Trees of New Brunswick (the first edition was published in 1987), forester David Palmer and conservationist Tracy Glynn have prepared a book that doubles as an informative guide to the province’s native and introduced species and a compendium of “champion” trees, drawn from nominations from all corners of the province.
A copy of The Great Trees of New Brunswick, original first edition circa 1987 was recently auctioned off at the Fredericton launch courtesy of
Chase Benjamin Antiques.
As of January 2018, 50 of the original 52 trees were accounted for. Of the 50 trees, 27 were still alive, 19 were gone, and the status of 4 trees was uncertain.
The Great Trees of New Brunswick, 2nd Edition, is out nation-wide this month, and to celebrate, we’ve compiled a list of things for you to check out.
