Tree health is a priority for arborists, tree managers, and homeowners alike. Yet a standard method of estimating and reporting it is lacking.
This book addresses that problem by laying out a robust method for everyday field work, making extensive use of published research. The text is accompanied by photographs that illustrate and clarify the points being made, and make the method easy to understand and apply. A volume in the Visual Identification Series, this book includes a free data-collection application for use on Android devices (including Kindle) at www.urbanforestanalytics.com .
