This is an extensive book that discusses care for over 1,000 tree species. Essential for tree management professionals, this reference is very informative for anyone who loves trees or wants to learn more about them. It is not a colorful picture book. It is a serious reference book, written in easy-to-understand language, which would be particularly useful for those responsible for the care of trees in an urban or suburban environment. The essentials for tree care are covered from selection, planting, establishment, and fertilization for trees growing across North America.
Twenty cross-referenced appendices will help readers match the right tree to the right location.
