Development Planning for Maritime Forests

Record #:
Zucchino discusses the structure of maritime forests. Among the functions of these trees are conserving groundwater by reducing evaporation and providing hurricane protection to barrier islands. The author discusses how early fishing villages were built in relation to the forests, the less sensitive approach to development that began after World War II, and how development in West Pine Knoll Shores dealt with maritime forests.
