The Haynes Tree Manual is a comprehensive guide to selecting and maintaining trees and will focus on finding the right tree for the right place. One of the USPs in the manual is being able to explain and quantify some of the many (around 33) tree benefits that are applicable to homeowners. For example - a tree planted in the right position can reduce your heating bill and some trees can also increase recovery time from illness.
There are many other practicalities and issues around trees such as subsidence, heave and proximity to powerlines, but also a lot of urban myths and misconceptions around these concerns too.
The Tree Manual will show readers how trees 'work', including the huge advances in the science over the last 20 years, what they need to survive and thrive in our increasing urban environments and how to use trees (as a biotechnology) to improve our immediate and wider environment.
