As a major gardening investment, few things rival the purchase and planting of a tree, for few plants have as great a potential to outlive their planter and become part of a landscape's posterity. Selection accomplished, gardeners must master tree maintenance, and can do so with the help of practical advice from the Prendergasts on how best to care for young and mature trees. From planting and pruning to predator protection and problem prevention, essential points are meticulously illustrated through well-defined photographs, detailed diagrams, and straightforward text.
