This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of current European forestry practices, including conventional plantation forestry, site preparation, choice of species, establishment, maintenance, nutrition, thinning, pruning, and protection.
"Although many aspects of their terminology differ from those currently used in North America, this publication will become a helpful reference to forest managers outside Europe. Well written and sufficiently illustrated, the major principles germane to successfully planting, nurturing, and protecting a tree crop are concisely presented. Also addressed are many of the special purposes for growing forests, such as shelter from the wind. As forestry becomes increasingly complex, resource books of this type will appreciate in their value to all readers." --Choice
"The book is generally easy to read and to understand. . .Students as well as practical foresters, therefore, will benefit from the detailed knowledge presented, by gaining an insight into ecological as well as social aspects of this wide field of forestry activities, and the book in general is highly recommended."--Forestry
