Description

The History of A Giant Sequoia Forest
The Story of Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest
By Floyd L. Otter and David Dulitz

Hardbound, 212 pages

This new publication chronicles the history of Mountain Home State Demonstration Forest from its purchase by the State of California in 1946 to 2000. Among other things the book describes how selective logging of the forest made it a profit making enterprise for the state and has created a prime recreation area. Even with the timber harvesting that has been done, the forest contains more board feet of timber today than when the area was purchased.

The book is authored by past Forest Managers Floyd L. Otter and David Dulitz, and edited by Dr. Jason I. Otter with pen and ink drawings by Mary K. Otter. The inside cover has a map of Mountain Home State Forest showing roads, streams and landmarks mentioned in the text. A chronological history describes important events in the history of the Forest from 1946 to 2003. Several pages are devoted to describing the location of names trees, stumps and logs, as well as locations of bedrock basins and bedrock mortars. It contains 94 drawings and photographs. Most of the photographs are in color.
