About this book

This book covers all aspects of planning, designing, establishing and managing trees and forests in and near urban areas. The disciplinary background of the authors is varied, ranging from forestry and horticulture to landscape ecology, landscape architecture and even pathology. The first chapters deal with the benefits and functions of urban forests and urban trees. But main emphasis is given to the establishment of trees for urban uses, including identification and selection of species, provenances and cultivars and to the management of urban forests and urban trees. The reader will also find a chapter dealing with Geographic Information Systems as a planning and management tool in this field and another one which is dedicated to the development of management methods that ensure optimal coordination between aesthetics, infrastructure and growth rates for street trees.
