Growing Greener Cities: A Tree-planting Handbook
This step-by-step guide, developed by the Global ReLeaf organization, presents tree-planting advice and simple steps to organizing a successful community tree-planting and tree-care program. The text is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces trees and discusses the role they play as components of the living urban environment. Distinctions are made between urban and rural forestry and ecosystems. Part 2 presents tree selection, planting, and care techniques. Included in this section is a summary of tree anatomy and functions. Part 3 presents a global perspective of the need to foster tree planting and care to address environmental problems. The focus of part 3 is how to organize community tree-planting and tree-care programs. A list of natural resources provides information about national trade, professional and citizen organizations; federal agencies; educational materials; materials for further reading; catalogs and mail-order suppliers; state Global ReLeaf coordinators, international Global ReLeaf partners, and local tree-planting groups. A glossary is also provided. (MCO)
