The Tree Care PrimerBook - 2007
Beyond bark, branches, and leaves, what do you see when you look at your trees? This must-have reference for anyone who owns property will teach you to assess your trees' health and keep it growing happily. Whether they are young or ancient, on a city sidewalk or in the backyard, here are all the details to provide the best possible care. Each tree has to respond to its environmental challenges--from lightning strikes to harsh urban reflected light and road salt--and planting the right tree in the right place is a key first step. Also included is a pruning primer that illustrates techniques to help avoid expensive mistakes, and a glossary of tree anatomy and functions.
