This publication sets out a comprehensive review of tree root biology and covers a broad range of practical issues that need to be considered in order to grow trees successfully in our towns and cities and to realise the significant benefits they provide in built environments. Topics covered include: soil condition and roots; improving tree root growth in urban soils; water supply and drought amelioration for amenity trees; coping with soil contamination; protecting trees during excavation and good trenching practice; control of damage to tree roots on construction sites; tree root damage to buildings and pavements, sewers, drains and pipes; research needs and sustainability issues.

Widespread concerns about the effects of trenching by the utility services and especially the nationwide installation of cable communications have revealed that the knowledge of root form and function and of their impact in the built environment lags behind our understanding of foliage and trees. This title details information on a wide range of practical problems in this area. It provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the many aspects of root biology including assessments of the effects of roots on man-made structures and vice versa.
