About this book

Indispensable reference for British use.
This book is concerned with the growing and maintenance of trees from the point of view of ornament and amenity, whether they are in the town or the countryside. It includes details of such matters as spacing, transplanting, pruning, protection and safety, and provides valuable information on the identification and treatment of many of the diseases and insect pests that attack trees.

In addition the book covers such varying subjects as botanic gardens and arboreta, a summary of all the principal law cases which have been concerned with trees, arboricultural education and the choice of trees for urban areas. Intended for outdoor as well as indoor use, The Arboriculturalist's Companion is written in a concise and readable form and is a book that no one who is responsible for trees can afford to be without.

Media reviews
To my mind this book would be especially valuable to the enthusiasts, amateurs, agents, foresters and land-owners, all of whom need specialised arboricultural information from time to time. Tree News "Mr James has rendered a very useful service .... should be regarded as [a] primer for use by entrants to the aboricultural profession and the environmentally concerned." Forestry "Excellent ... the illustrations are clear and effective .... A valuable feature of the book is a section on legal aspects including important law cases." Outlook on Agriculture
