  1. Nicholas Whittaker Dankers (verified owner)

    When I began working for Ian MacCallum and Trees for Life Inc. in 2002, this book was described as “The Bible of Arboriculture” [pronounced with a silent ‘i’, like Parliament] and Ian let me borrow his copy.

    Fast forward to 2020, and I still say that this is essential reading for any arborist, tree climber, and/or citizen who would like to understand trees from the mycorrhizae/roots to the apical meristems.

    Good luck!*

    *Luck: Occasionally, when a proficient tree climber makes a mistake while rigging down a piece of wood and it lands without causing a damage, someone will often say, “Wow, that was lucky!”

    In such cases, the proper response is “Well, you’re only lucky if you’ve got mad skills.”

    When in doubt, I suggest utilizing the Myriad Systems Technique (MST) as an upgrade to the Double System Technique (DST) for tree care operations.
