Abstract:

Trees represent great public and private values in a community. Trees comprise an appreciating asset base as well as a risk component in managing landscapes. Trees remains symbols, icons, pillars, ceilings, and centerpieces of communities. Trees seem to be more than pets, but less than off-spring to humans. But, in all the values associated with trees, tree-filled landscapes, and tree lined streets, what is a tree? How can we define the living entity which generates values we find alluring, essential, and an integral part of our culture and quality of life?
