The complete guide to using plants in urban landscape design Trees in the Urban Landscape offers all the critical tools .

The complete guide to using plants in urban landscape design Trees in the Urban Landscape offers all the critical tools for successful planting in urban landscapes, from design conceptualization to daily maintenance. This is the perfect reference for addressing the complex issues involved in the greening of cities. In this book, our objectives are to empower landscape architects, horticulturists, and city foresters with tools so that they may make detailed assessments of sites that pose problems or present opportunities for proposed and existing plantings.

Site assessment, soil remediation, and plant selection. Designing for biological diversity and visual similarity. Soil texture, compaction, pH, and nutrients. Spatial limitations, drainage, and existing vegetation. Trees in the Urban Landscape is an essential volume for anyone working in landscape architecture, urban planning, urban design, and aboriculture, as well as students in these fields.

Tree condition is another predictor of urban tree mortality ( Koeser et al. 2013) and is itself an indicator of sensitivity to stress (Trowbridge and Bassuk 2004). Modification to streetscape design can ameliorate tree decline in the long-term, while education targeted at raising awareness about de-icing salt application and irrigation practices will lessen tree stressors immediately.
