9780117535459: Diagnosis of Ill-health in Trees (Research for Amenity Trees)

An easy to understand non-laboratory based system for determining the causes of ill-health in trees. The emphasis is on problems of species grown for non-commercial purposes, but nearly all causes of ill-health in trees are covered on some detail, apart from damage from biting insects and mammals. Subjects covered include: diagnostic procedure, the known problems of virtually all tree genera used for amenity purposes in Great Britain; prevention and treatment of pests, diseases and disorders; decay and tree safety; and tree pest and disease legislation. Additions to the second edition include a major section of the identification of the principal wood-rotting fungi on trees, and items on water logging and exotic pests and diseases.
