About this book

Here is the second edition of a book that provides the arboriculturist, forester, gardener – indeed anyone interested in trees – with a practical, workable, non-laboratory based system for determining the cause of ill-health in trees.

The new edition contains much new information and has been revised to make it even more convenient to use.

The emphasis is on problems of species grown for non-commercial purposes but virtually all causes of ill-health in trees are covered in some detail (apart from damage from biting insects and mammals). The most important or striking problems are fully described and illustrated, and their significance and control discussed.

Subjects covered include:
- Diagnostic procedure
- The known problems of virtually all tree genera used for amenity purposes in Great Britain
- Prevention and treatment of pests, diseases and disorders
- Decay and tree safety
- Tree pest and disease legislation
