Connections in wood and foliage

Year Published



American Nurseryman. 3: 12,14.


Trees are networked systems that capture energy, move massive amounts of water and material, and provide the setting for human society and for the lives of many associated organisms. Tree survival depends on making and breaking the right connections within these networks.
