From the reviews of the second edition: "This is the best urban forestry text published in recent years. ... The second edition of Kuser's popular ... volume includes 16 new or revised chapters of 26 total. It is a wonderful compilation of information pertinent to this rapidly growing field, which offers tremendous job opportunities as the population continues to urbanize. ... this book is destined to be a classic--one that this reviewer plans to use in his own course on the subject next year. Summing Up: Essential. All levels." (D. F. Karnosky, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (10), June, 2007)
