About this book

Language: English

The Body Language of Trees, produced as one of the Research for Amenity Trees series, was one of Claus Mattheck's most popular books. Although borrowing part of the title from the earlier edition, and essentially applying the same principles and style as other books by Mattheck, the author sees this as a new work. It updates and revises the earlier book, summarising results from tree research carried out at the Karlsruhe Research Centre (now KIT) over the last 25 years.

To paraphrase Claus's own words:"...it aims to promote deeper understanding of the body language of trees. The method of tree inspection described has been verified by computerized methods and field studies. It is the basis of many court decisions and is used all over the world...."

One quarter of The Body Language of Trees comprises a section on wood decay fungi. An index and bibliography are provided.
