About this book

&i;Planting and Establishment of Tropical Trees&o; explains, in a practical and straightforward way, how to plant and establish the most appropriate trees for a particular location and the benefits required. Complete with many line drawings and diagrams, it shows how to select the most suitable specimens, planting methods, and how to ensure that newly planted trees thrive, by protecting them from damage from the weather, from animals or from disease.

Written by a forestry expert for the non-specialist reader, this will be an invaluable guide to anyone trying to ensure that a rich variety of trees survive to maturity, across the tropics.

Media reviews

It is written in a clear style with questions and answers. The text is jargon-free, to-the-point and non-academic. Leisa Magazine, volume 24, Issue 2 "This excellent volume is the last in a series of five practical guides to propagating and planting tropical trees. It has many points to recommend it: extremely clear and straight-forward writing; attractive and helpful line-drawn illustrations; spiral bound and organised as a series of photocopiable sheets, ideal for training purposes, with cross references to relevant sections in other volumes in the series." - New Agriculturalist (read the full review: http://www.new-ag.info/08/03/books.php#453)
