Oak trees sustain a complex and fascinating web of wildlife. The Nature of Oaks reveals what is going on in oak trees month by month, highlighting the seasonal cycles of life, death, and renewal. From busy woodpeckers who collect and store hundreds of acorns to beautiful jewel caterpillars, Doug Tallamy celebrates the wonders of life that occur in these trees, right in our own backyards. He also shares practical advice about how to plant and care for an oak, along with information about the best oak species for your area.

The Nature of Oaks will inspire you to treasure these trees and to act to nurture and protect them. This beautiful hardcover book will be published at the end of March 2021.  Pre-order a copy now.
