Overview

Dictionary fo Managing Trees in Urban Environments contains a comprehensive list of terms used in the universal management of urban trees.

Many of the terms are from arboricultural science, while others are derived from unproven but commonly applied concepts. Where the existing terminology to describe trees was limited or nonexistent, new terms have been introduced.

The dictionary allows for broad application and use by a wide variety of people and conveys in plain language concepts that are sometimes complex. Most major terms have been cross-referenced and diagrams have been added for greater understanding. While a number of pertinent botanical terms have been included, many terms readily found within dictionaries of general plant sciences and botany have been omitted.

Dictionary for Managing Trees in Urban Environments promotes a greater understanding of arboriculture and urban forestry, and will assist in the preparation of reports for the management of trees, procedures and planning instruments, such as Tree Management Policies and Tree Management Orders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I’ll dip into this articulate compendium next time I open a tree management report. Our tree expert at the Botanic Gardens, Dave Bidwell, considers it useful in any arborist’s toolkit.”

"I couldn't put this book down, which seems silly when you are speaking about a dictionary. This book would be particularly useful to anyone who needs to write about tress, aboriculture or urban forestry - whether it be schoolchildren or anyone in the horticulture or publishing industry. This is a clearly written and easy to understand volume. The authors have done an excellent job."

"In short, it's the perfect back-up for anyone who's writing a report, reading a report, or studying the subject of tree management, as it covers all the ground. If tree management is your business, then so is this book."
