Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"To the best of my knowledge this is the first European reference book to treat urban forestry as serious field of knowledge in its own right. … This impressive work is a tribute to the hard work of a dedicated group of European urban forestry specialists … . the overall benefit that reading and referencing this book will bring to the urban forest professional. If that is what you are or aspire to be, I urge you to acquire a copy." (Glenn Gorner, Arboricultural Journal, Vol. 29 (4), 2006)
