Since 1943, the International Society of Arboriculture has been publishing books that have documented changes in tree planting practices over the decades. This comprehensive volume is an up-to-date synthesis of the research devoted to planting urban trees. Anyone interested in planting trees—arborists, landscape professionals, students, researchers, and avid gardeners—will find this book to be an invaluable resource with an extensive reference list of scientific literature. Designed to help readers understand and implement the appropriate practices vital to planting a tree, it offers guidance to improve success and establish healthy trees that will last a lifetime.

This updated volume includes an abundance of full color photographs and illustrations, and provides information to help everyone:

  • Understand the biology of plant response during digging, planting, and establishment at the new site
  • Develop a basic understanding of how the transition to a new environment affects trees
  • Minimize future tree problems through proper site preparation, selection, and planting
  • Chapters are organized by logical steps in the planting process.
