How Woody Plants Grow. Physiological and Environmental Requirements for Tree Growth. Establishment and Growth of Tree Stands. Radiation. Temperature. Soil Properties and Mineral Nutrition. Water Stress. Soil Aeration, Compaction, and Flooding. Air Pollution. Carbon Dioxide. Fire. Wind. Cultural Practices. Each chapter includes references. Index.


The efficient management of trees and other woody plants can be improved given an understanding of the physiological processes that control growth, the complex environmental factors that influence those processes, and our ability to regulate and maintain environmental conditions that facilitate growth.

Key Features

  • Emphasizes genetic and environmental interactions that influence woody plant growth
  • Outlines responses of individual trees and tree communities to environmental stress
  • Explores cultural practices useful for efficient management of shade, forest, and fruit trees, woody vines, and shrubs
