Description

It's a tough neighborhood for trees in the built environment. It is an ecosystem unlike any other, because it is dynamic, fragmented, high-pressure, and constantly under siege. There are continual extremes and challenges in this "un-natural" area as opposed to the environment in a more natural woodland. It's a place where trees die young, without proper selection, planting, and care. Successful tree selection requires us to think backwards—beginning with the end in mindMdash;to get the right tree in the right place...in the right way. This publication takes a look at some important components of the decision-making process for tree selection.
