- Many old treatments have hurt the tree system.
- Many adjustments to old practices must be made now.
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.

A lot of great information in this book. Shigo books are always great reads.
Succint yet thorough - 06/24/2014
Reviewer: Aaron Danforth
This book is an amazing resource and is written in a somewhat unusual fashion. Rather than longwinded explanations and chapters, the pages of this book are broken down into plates, generally simple, succint diagrams on a single subject. A wonderful addition to any Arborists TREEsearch library.
