Summary
For the 100-year anniversary of the Texas A&M Forest Service, the agency presents a new edition of the classic book, telling the stories of one hundred and one trees throughout the state. Some are old friends, featured in the first edition and still alive (27 of the original 81 trees described in the first edition have died); some are newly designated, discovered as people began to recognize their age and value. All of them remain "living links" to the state's storied past.
