Tree Nurseries: Cultivating the Urban Jungle
9.5" x 13"
240 pages, 600 images
This publication reports on tree nurseries all over the world, their contexts, the historical backgrounds to their emergence, the ways in which they influence town and landscape planning and the relevant economic factors. Here the relationship between man and his environment is always in the foreground of the investigation; this has been shown from time immemorial in terms of plant production in all regions. The desire to produce and the ability to transform things, to be creative, have characterized human existence and man's environment from the outset. Each chapter contains essays and travel reports with photographs of the present situation.
