Quatrième de couverture

A comprehensive guide to the care of trees, this book covers all aspects of arboriculture from the fundamentals of tree growth and development to developing plant health care programs. It discusses aspects of site selection and modification including climate, and soil and water management. The book follows the tree from selection in the nursery to planting and aftercare through such routine practices as pruning, fertilization, support systems, and plant health care. Key management situations such as tree preservation, hazard assessment, and problem diagnosis are discussed in detail.

The fourth edition offers several new features that the student of arboriculture and practicing arborists will find valuable:

  • Reorganization of topics to improve continuity of information
  • Addition of overviews and summaries for each chapter
  • Updated assessment of tree care practices such as soil amendments, mycorrhizae, and tree growth regulators
  • Thorough evaluation of the benefits from trees (economic, environmental, ecological, and psychological) including examples of the most recent research on cost-benefit analysis of trees in urban areas
  • Emphasis on special management situations such as structural soils, root-pavement conflicts, and remnant forests

Arboriculture is a science and art that is made up of many different contributing factors. This book does a very good job of covering them all. Any one of the chapters could be expanded into a book in itself. This thoroughly researched and written book is for the person who wants all of their information in one place. It is a textbook for the technically minded arborist, tree surgeon, tree farmer, or hobbyist. Don't look for this book to be entertaining or philosophical. Instead, buy this book for the knowledge held within. There is a lot to be learned from it. Every single page is filled with facts, figures, methods, and recommendations. You will find yourself reading every page a second or third time in order to catch it all. I refer back to this book on a regular basis, because there is no way I can remember it all. If you have any questions about the management of trees or shrubs, you will likely find it in this book.

Very complete and up to date information on Arboriculture. Chapters are well organized, highlighting what you need to know. Does a great job of covering the basics, but also gets into details and is fairly technical, without becoming unreadable. A must have reference book for the Landscaper.

This should be a required text for any Plant Bio or Hort student. An easy to understand scientific approach to arboriculture. It sets a standard that all arborists should follow. It also serves as a great reference for the novice and home gardener alike. This is not a book that just sits on a shelf. My copy is dogeared from use long after the classes and tests have ended.

As a certified arborist, this book is must for the library reference - more importantly, it is one of my textbooks for teaching at Temple University and for teaching at Longwood Gardens. This is one of the best sources for studying for the certified arborist exam. Buying this book is money well spent. I have two books, one for each of my offices.

I echo the praise that others have given this book. I am so pleased with the depth of content on such a variety of subjects. I read my copy cover to cover and have continued to refer to it so much that I have almost worn off the front cover. It is a much more detailed reference than the Arborist study guide book. It's clear that the book has been updated to reflect the current best practices but some of the pictures with people are hilarious because of the dated clothes.

I would add that the well organized Appendix has led me to some other good books to further my knowledge. One in particular that is referenced heavily is "The Body Language of Trees". I ordered this book and was amazed by the authors ability to communicate difficult biomechanical concepts in simple terms.
