Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is the best urban forestry text published in recent years. … The second edition of Kuser’s popular … volume includes 16 new or revised chapters of 26 total. It is a wonderful compilation of information pertinent to this rapidly growing field, which offers tremendous job opportunities as the population continues to urbanize. … this book is destined to be a classic—one that this reviewer plans to use in his own course on the subject next year. Summing Up: Essential. All levels." (D. F. Karnosky, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (10), June, 2007)
