About this book

Trees optimize their mechanical design by adaptive growth, and react by self- repair to loads disturbing their optimum mechanical state. In the light of these growth reactions, the fate of a tree can be known from its outer shape and from its tree rings. This book teaches us to understand the body language of trees.
