Tree Pruning: A Worldwide Photo Guide Reviews
Review – True Pruning: A Worldwide Photo Guide
highly recommended, i'm a huge an of Dr. Alex Shigo and this is his first book i can call my own
This book will change the way you think about trees. It's essentially a condensation of the principals Shigo presented in his book "A New Tree Biology", but directed at those who care for, and prune, trees. Before you take saw or loppers to a tree, make sure you read this book. Check the Shigo website; the prices are much better than the copies shown here.
I rented this book from the library and it is excellent. I am now looking to purchase the book, and I notice it holds its value. I was expecting to find this book like almost all other books online for like a dollar or two. But, no, this book is pricey, and that is probably because others agree it is so good.
Dr Alex Shigo almost singlehandedly revolutionized the tree-care industry by researching how trees work, and how they deal with injuries (including pruning) and decay. This book uses color photos and clear explanations of how pruning should be done for the most benefit to a tree itself and to the people who share its space, for maximum beauty, safety and serviceability. I used to have a copy of this book, but evidently somebody liked it even better than I did. The copy I'm buying will be my second, and I don't plan to lend it out!
