Title: Disposable Landscapes
Author: Smith, Kevin T.
Publication: The Landsculptor. February: 57-58.
Abstract: Whether we are a traditionalist or on the cutting edge of landscape care, we need to take a deep breath and think about what we are trying to achieve, before we select a specific treatment or practice for tree care. We should measure that treatment or practice against what we know about the tree system. I say "system" because the recent years of Modern Arboriculture (Shigo 1991) have demonstrated the value of seeing trees as responsive, integrated organisms and landscapes as living communities.
