KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not really a practical manual like Caring For Trees on City Streets (1975). Indeed, the few pages on the recreational and ecological value of urban wooded areas are overbalanced by a leisurely, season-by-season tour of tree botany, including some informal observations and interesting experiments with fall leaves. General as the text is, the easy language and slant towards city environments will draw some who might not otherwise think terminal buds and tree tings are worth knowing about. In spite of the drab, darkish photos, a practical though inessential addition to city collections.
