Ponderosa: People, Fire, and the West's Most Iconic Tree.


Ponderosa: People, Fire, and the West's Most Iconic Tree

Carl E. Fiedler and Stephen F. Arno

Mountain Press


260 pages



Both drawing on long histories in forestry and personal experience with ponderosa pines in the western US, Fiedler and Arno explore the interaction of the trees, fire, and humans. They cover a tale of two forests, Indians and pioneers in the pines, a special tree, forests born of fire, crusaders against fire, advocates for burning, logging legacy from clearfelling to clear cutting, loving the forests to death, forests under siege from megafire to bark beetles, whether it is too late for restoration, protecting a home and its forest, and the future. The second part is a guide to places where people can experience ponderosa pines in 14 states and British Columbia.
