Arboriculture

history and development in North America


Description

"Arboriculture - the emphasis on keeping trees alive and healthy - has emerged only recently as a profession, however, the practices in use today are the culmination of decades of development. The first book of its kind, Aboriculture: History and Development in North America chronicles a century of this "love of trees" view as it has developed into a viable profession." "This unique history will be of interest to arborists, city foresters, landscape architects, nursery companies, contractors, park and city managers, superintendents of institutional grounds, educators, students, workers in land management, government and public utilities - and anyone involved in the preservation of trees."--Jacket.
