Time to GET OUT New Brunswick
It has been, honestly, the longest of winters. The weather has finally turned, and New Brunswick trails and parks are open. We recommend a couple books from our Time to... GET OUT! collection, to help see beautiful New Brunswick as you've never seen it before:
New Brunswick offers a dizzying array of hiking challenges, spectacular views, and amazing wildlife. In this expanded and updated fourth edition of Hiking Trails of New Brunswick, veteran trail enthusiasts Marianne and H.A. Eiselt lead hikers from one end of the province to the other, along river valleys, through provincial and national parks, along the coasts, and up and down mountains.
Newly illustrated in full colour with striking photographs and maps, this comprehensive guide includes more than 100 trails, with detailed trail descriptions, tips, and sidebars on natural and historical features. Featuring up-to-the-minute information, the essential guide to hiking in New Brunswick has just become even better.
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.
Divided into sections on hardwoods, softwoods, and exotics and lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, The Great Trees of New Brunswick features chapters on all thirty-two native species and nine introduced species. Each chapter includes information on the tree's defining features, habitat and uses, as well as photographs and a detailed description of champion trees. Rounding out the book is an introductory essay on the Acadian forest — its history, survival, and future.
Whether you're an avid hiker, outdoors person, or simply someone who wants to know more about the trees of the Acadian forest, you'll find The Great Trees of New Brunswick to be an essential reference to New Brunswick's forests and its panoply of trees.
Every tree has a story, and this guide is a delight for anyone who loves nature.
