Lone Pine Publishing
Lone Pine Publishing is an Alberta-based book publisher, best known across Canada and parts of the United States for its gardening books, bird guides and nature guides.

Since then, Lone Pine Publishing has published over 600 titles. The company also distributes books for a number of smaller Canadian and U.S. publishers through an extensive network of independent booksellers and other retailers, marketing in all Canadian provinces except Quebec and in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, California and the Great Lakes states.
