About this book

The A-Z of Tree Terms is for everyone in Britain with a serious interest in trees. It contains over 3000 entries, many on the staples of arboriculture: tree physiology and management, tree mechanics and hazard, trees and development, soil properties and building subsidence, and planning and legal matters. Some are in the closely related fields of forestry, fruit tree culture, plant propagation, garden design, historic landscape and building design. And others are on the natural environment and on climate change. A-Z of Tree Terms is a primer for arboricultural consultants and allied professionals, and will be interesting and useful for anyone who owns trees, is affected by them or just likes them.
