The Body Language of Trees (Encyclopedia of Visual Tree Assessment) - Claus Mattheck
In Claus' own words, this book:
is a digest of a quarter century of tree research at the Karlsruhe Research Centre (now KIT)
promotes deeper understanding of the body language of trees
explains their defect symptoms, their failure, and their sorrows
shows fungal fruit bodies as witnesses in court
discloses universal forms in animate and inanimate nature
save people from trees and trees from people
The method of tree inspection described in this book is based on observation of nature and on folk mechanics verified by computerized methods and field studies. It is the basis of many court decisions and is used all over the world.
This is a handshake of science with friends of trees.
