Tough Trees for Tough Sites: A video and companion booklet to help nursery producers match urban demands
This 23 minute video takes the viewer through the site assessment, decision making and plant selection processes on a real street tree planting site in Ithaca, NY. Over the course of one year, the site is investigated and transformed-a process documented by the video. We see the process from the many stakeholders points of view: the city forester, landscape architect, nursery professional, horticulturist and the public. The importance of site assessment in establishing a low maintenance, pest-free landscape is discussed.
