Examples include explinations of the differences between a tree fall caused by wind blow over (thunderstorm, tornado, straight line winds,etc.) , snow loading, dead tree rot, logging and fire kill. Great detail on the differences of tree rotting of pine, cedar, oak, maple, hickory, elm, chestnut. Simple discussion on fence type and wall construction. The hows and whys of early agriculture.
I do suggest strongly to buy both books. Both present new information when used together will guide you into a new world filled with the past.
I found this book quite clear and useful. The color photographs and accompanying discussion illustrate Wessel's points very well. The key is easy to follow and unambiguous. The book is very much tied to the landscape and forested history of New England--it would be interesting to see which of Wessels' clues might apply to forests in other parts of the country or world. Overall, this is an excellent reference for woods walkers.
