Trees and related vegetation have long been planted in cities for a variety of reasons. From trees with special religious significance in ancient temples to trees captured in planters adjacent to our newest office buildings, we have sought to accompany our urban lives with some representation of nature. During the past few decades, individuals and society have placed a much greater emphasis on urban vegetation. As cities become larger and more complex, trees may exist in them through careful design, through poor design, or by accident. Urban Forestry addresses how to carefully and successfully plan for and manage vegetation as part of an urban ecosystem. This edition provides information on all aspects of the field, including the history and uses of urban vegetation, appraisal and inventories, the planning process, and management and maintenance. Concepts are elucidated throughout the text with numerous photos, tables, line drawings, graphs, and charts. The nine appendices add to the book's usefulness for both students and professionals.
