About this book

This handbook describes how to plan, create and manage urban woodlands. The primary role of urban forestry is to provide multi-purpose woodlands which improve the quality of daily life for the 46 million urban people of Britain and so the handbook goes beyond the technical issues of establishing and managing trees to encompass community involvement, planning multi-purpose woodlands and the wider urban context. An emphasis on case studies gives practical insights into urban forestry in its widest sense.
