About this book

This dictionary contains a complete list of terms used in the universal management of urban trees. Many of the terms are from Arboricultural science, while others are derived from unproven but commonly applied concepts. Some new concepts have been introduced where the existing terminology to describe trees was limited or nonexistent.

In many texts concepts are only partly defined and so uncertainty can remain as to their exact meaning. Here the dictionary aims to provide clarity.The dictionary allows for broad application and use by a wide variety of people and conveys in plain language concepts that are sometimes complex. Most major terms have been cross referenced and diagrams have been added for greater understanding. While a number of pertinent botanical terms have been included many terms readily found within dictionaries of general plant sciences and botany have been omitted."Dictionary for Managing Trees in Urban Environments" promotes a greater understanding of Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, and will assist in the preparation of reports for the management of trees, procedures and planning instruments, such as "Tree Management Policies and Tree Management Orders".

This is a comprehensive dictionary for managing urban trees. The book has broad application by other professions. It is topic based with an index and cross references, and is drawn from modern research from around the world. It provides terminology where in some instances none existed. It consolidates meaning through extensive cross referencing.
