Trees of Power: Ten Essential Arboreal Allies

by Akiva Silver Author

A guide to organic tree farming and ecology, through the lens of trees common to North America and similarly temperate climates. Propagate, plant, and tend trees to build soil biodiversity, shelter wildlife and humans alike, create shade, grow food and medicine, and contribute to carbon conversion in the atmosphere. The author draws on years of experience running a commercial nursery to walk you through the ecology of perennial woody plants and to explain, species by species, how to succeed growing trees without spending a lot of money.
