About this book

This eagerly awaited book completes the set of three handbooks included within the Research for Amenity Trees series. After Diagnosis of Ill-Health in Trees, The Body Language of Trees gave new insights into tree biomechanics. This new volume deals with the whole range of factors which are relevant to tree-related hazards. It will be regarded as essential reading by people whose business is trees, and it will also be of great interest to all those who have a love for trees and a concern for human safety. With an emphasis on principles, rather on a ‘cookbook’ approach, the aim is to place the reader in a better position not only to assess and manage risks to people and property, but also to protect trees from unnecessary felling and disfigurement.

Topics include:
- Occupiers’ liability
- Factors contributing to hazard and risk
- Wood decay and the identification of decay fungi
- Assessment procedures
- Remedial and preventive management
- Environmental considerations
