About this book

Widespread concerns about the effects of trenching by the utility services and especially the nationwide installation of cable communications have revealed that the knowledge of root form and function and of their impact in the built environment lags behind our understanding of foliage and trees. Tree Roots in the Built Environment details information on a wide range of practical problems in this area. It provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the many aspects of root biology including assessments of the effects of roots on man-made structures and vice versa.
