The Nature of Oaks
With Bringing Nature Home, Tallamy awaked gardeners to the importance of native plants. With Nature's Best Hope he broadened his message, advocating for homeowners everywhere to turn their yards into conservation coridoors. And now, in The Nature of Oaks, Tallamy celebrates the mighty oak, a native tree that has the greatest capacity to sustain a wide variety of wildlife—not just insects, but birds and mammals as well. By observing an oak tree on his own property every month for a year, Tallamy reveals the rich and complex natural processes that occur everyday in our home landscapes. Packed with science, hopeful in its optimism about the future, and including helpful appendixes, The Nature of Oaks is the next must-read from one of the most important voices of our time.
