Whenever I meet people who have not come across arboriculture as a profession they struggle to grasp what it is I do for a living. They know that people prune and fell trees but they are unaware of the management role and what it involves. Trees are managed for a variety of purposes including: timber production, fruit production, nursery stock, amenity, ecology, heritage, and each aspect of tree management is its own individual industry. As a consultant I inspect trees and produce management plans specific to the environment the trees are in and the aims of the tree owner.
Donít let anyone tell you that planting in shade is a problem. Donít believe for an instant that shade gardens are boring or that your plant selections are limited. Nature is the best demonstrator for the possibilities of shade-loving plants. Just walk through a forest and observe the many combinations of bold and finely textured, flamboyant and charming, low-growing and looming shade-tolerant plants. See with new eyes the many forms, textures, and colors, and notice how refreshing and inviting a shady retreat can be. Then you, too, may be inspired to discover the special pleasures of shade gardening.
Understanding how trees grow enables us to better care for them throughout their lives. There still exist many myths about trees and how they develop. Trees do not grow from the bottom up, continuing to push from the bottom of their stems; rather they elongate from their shoot tips and expand around their circumference by generating new cells annually. The end of every shoot contains an area termed a meristem which develops new growth each year. This new growth is called extension growth. New layers of cells are developed at the end of an existing shoot.
