American Canopy by Eric Rutkow.
Rutkow’s work shows how trees were essential to the early years of the republic and indivisible from the United States’ rise as both an empire and a civilization. Rutkow also explains how trees were of deep interest to such figures as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Teddy Roosevelt, and Franklin Roosevelt, who oversaw the planting of some three billion trees nationally in his time as president.
