The necessary knowledge and tools required for planting and maintaining city
trees are presented in this guide intended for public officials, design professionals,
engineers, developers, and arborists who wish to increase the quality and value
of the urban forest.
This highly relevant manual discusses guidance in policy
decision-making, and studies the basic science of soil, trees, and soil condition
analysis. Thorough instruction is provided for applying soil-based, tree-based,
and management-based strategies in the day-to-day, tree-by-tree development of
large, healthy trees that help sustain a healthier, more inviting urban environment.
