The Gift of Trees

Categories:  Natural Resources ,  Plants

The Tree Farmer is a beautifully illustrated story of a boy and his grandfather, who is a tree farmer. The book takes readers on a magical journey through the forest, discovering the gift of trees and our responsibility to care for them, generation to generation. This story is followed by a lesson in which students learn about the many different ways trees are used and how they affect our daily lives.
