A-Z of Tree Terms: A companion to British arboriculture
This second edition of the book is for everyone in Britain with a serious interest in trees.
If you work with trees the book will be a good companion, if you own trees your responsibilities will be made easier to understand, and if you simply like trees the book will deepen your affection. If you’re anxious about a tree-related problem, thinking of getting advice, need some tree work or have trees that are affected by a planning application, the book will be useful in practice. And if you’re a serious student of trees you’d better know what one is.
From lion-tail to cat-slide, from edible dormouse to heave, from barber’s chair to frill girdle and from ha-ha to hoo, this book will equip you for any eventuality.
