It is both a superb introduction for the beginner and an authoritative companion for the enthusiast and professional, providing greater knowledge and understanding of the key elements of tree classification, anatomy and use from around the world. This is destined to become the essential reference work for all gardeners, designers, planners, arboriculturists and horticulturists with an interest and passion for the tropical and subtropical.
