New Products Showcase – August 2009
This Month’s Showcase Resource:
“The Road to a Thoughtful Street Tree Master Plan”
This exciting, new publication was co-authored by Ken Simons, a landscape architect, and Gary Johnson, a professor of urban forestry, as a primer and guide of sorts for communities that have the opportunity to develop or change, yet may not have the expertise or background to do it effectively. Written as a very pragmatic guide to selecting and placing trees in streetscapes, it emphasizes not only the architectural nature of street tree designs, but it goes to great lengths to help the user create an extensive list of credentials that the trees must have to fulfill the design.
