Free Ebook - Now Much Improved For Digital Viewing
This digital document, a scan of the 1929 edition of Tree Crops, was scanned and prepared by the Soil and Healthy Library in 2009 and then released into the public domain.
In 2016 this document was reworked and improved for digital viewing by Walden Labs. The 2-page spread was split into single pages, the text was realigned, and every pale photo in the book was digitally touched up to look its best. Finally the pages were turned into beautiful black and white text.
