From Our Footsteps, Giant Forests Grow (coastal planting photo book)

I've just recently released another coffee-table style photo book, featuring around 230 pages of full-colour photos of tree planting.  The photos are intended to convey, in mostly visual terms, what may be experienced while planting in British Columbia's rugged coastal region.  The book is priced at $39.95 for the print edition, and only $3.99 for the digital editions.

The photos were taken on various coastal projects, predominantly on the north end of Vancouver Island.  The best thing is that if you follow the website or Instagram account regularly, these photos will still be new to you.  Almost every one of the photos in the book is being shown to the public for the first time.  If you've planted elsewhere in Canada, this book should be an eye-opener about the specific challenges involved with coastal planting.

There are two print editions of this book available (hardcover and softcover).  There are also various digital editions available at very attractive pricing.  Here's a link to the print editions on Amazon's Canadian website:

  Full-Colour Softcover ($39.95 Cdn): 
  Full-Colour Hardcover (about $70 Cdn):

And here are links to digital eBook versions:

  Kindle Store ($3.99 Cdn):
  Apple Books ($3.99 Cdn):
    (In Google Books, you may have to change the setting from "Flowing Text" to "Original Pages" on some devices in order for the content to display correctly). 

For those who are on a tight budget, and for those who prefer looking at black & white photos, there's a greyscale version of this book available.  It is priced very affordably at $14.95 Cdn, and it has all the same photos as the other versions (but in black & white).

Incidentally, I have a second completely separate photo book specifically devoted to Interior tree planting.  The title of that book is Rite Of Passage and it focuses on traditional seasonal planting jobs based out of remote tent camps.  Also, don't confuse either of my photo books with Step By Step: A Tree Planter's Handbook, which is used throughout Canada as a training and reference manual for new tree planters.  There are videos at the bottom of this post to showcase these other two books.
