Show your commitment to proper tree care! A recent reprinting of Modern Arboriculture makes this most popular item, now available to everyone! Modern Arboriculture is one of the most studied, requested and acclaimed books of Dr. Alex L. Shigo.
Modern Arboriculture is about new and better ways to help trees stay healthy, safe and attractive.
Common tree treatments, and other seldom discussed subjects such as: symplast, tyloses, reaction wood, protection wood, genetics of CODIT, infection pathways, canker rots, wound reactions, energy flow, ATP, glycolysis, enzymes, mass-energy ratio, three-tree concept, core-skin hypothesis, mycorrhizae and phenological patterns.
- Modern Arboriculture is about the tree system; how it grows, how it defends itself, and how it eventually dies.
- Modern Arboriculture is about using your mind as well as your muscles.
- Many old treatments have hurt the tree system. Many adjustments to old practices must be made now.
