Written by a leader in arboriculture research and study, this text provides invaluable information about tree systems: how they grow, defend themselves,
and eventually die. Also included are Alex Shigo’s proven methods for maintaining the health, safety, and aesthetics of trees through knowledge and understanding, as well as mechanical practices. Modern Arboriculture is an excellent reference for
arborists, landscape architects, urban foresters, fruit growers, students, and anyone who cares about trees.
