Arboriculture: Integrated Management of Landscape Trees, Shrubs, and Vines

Arboriculture: Integrated Management of Landscape Trees, Shrubs, and Vines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Synopsis:

This comprehensive text covers all aspects of tree, shrub and vine care. It has been updated to reflect up-to-date information.

Synopsis:

Regarded by many as an irreplaceable reference tool, this book describes the integration of the landscape environment (climate, soil, and related organisms), its effect on landscape plants, and how to manage both to obtain the desired results with reasonable effort. All aspects of tree, shrub, and vine care are covered, including plant structure and function, plant selection, site analysis and preparation, environmental influences on growth, soil, water and nutrient management, pruning, transplanting, and plant health care. A valuable handbook for professionals, including arboricultural consultants, arborists, urban foresters, landscape architects, landscape contractors (installation and/or maintenance), state and county horticultural extension advisors, park directors and staff (federal, state, regional, and local), street tree superintendents and staff, grounds superintendents and staff (golf courses, college and school grounds, cemeteries, condominiums, retirement communities, theme parks, etc.), arboretum and botanic garden directors and staff, nursery growers and retailers.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 535-562) and index.
