Summary
One death in ten is the average annual death rate of newly planted trees in our cities. This is costing over ten million pounds a year and is not caused by vandalism but by poor planting techniques and maintenance. Landscape architects, planners and arboriculturalists are all under increasing pressure to improve the effectiveness of their planting schemes. This practical source book is crammed with essential data and analysis of all the factors affecting trees in towns and cities. It will explain the scientific principles underlying good practice, enabling the reader to approach planting problems with knowledge and confidence; through the many illustrations show the results of good and bad practice; provide an up-to-date review of modern research directed at improving the survival and growth of newly planted trees; and give costs for every operation
