This is a practical summary of tree problems that are likely to be encountered by amenity trees in Great Britain, distinguishing those which will respond to control measures, and those which can be safely ignored or cannot be controlled. Illustrated in colour throughout, it is an introduction to the subject of tree pathology and is ideal for arboriculturists and others without specialist pathological or entomological knowledge. In addition to the well-known problems, a number are described which are unfamiliar or previously undescribed. The three main sections are: 1) Diagnostic procedure, 2) a directory arranged by tree genus to the problems described, and 3) detailed illustrated descriptions with commentaries of the principal pests, diseases and disorders included. There are also other sections on control measures and on decay and safety.
