About this book

Introduces the mechanics of failure, explaining how loading is always at war with material and form, alerts you to the weak places in structures, and shows how damage can be avoided by careful shaping. Although the problems are engineering the applications are – of course! – to trees in many cases, and The Face of Failure will be of use to arboriculturists.
