ABOUT THE PRUNING OF TREES, SHRUBS AND CONIFERS

How, when, and where to prune? The questions that beset every gardener never change, but the solutions do. 

The Pruning of Trees, Shrubs and Conifers
recommends the best pruning techniques and practices. This unique encyclopedic treatment details the best pruning methods for more than 450 genera of trees, shrubs, conifers, and woody climbers. The A-Z format covers several thousand species, yet remains a manageable and practical reference. Kirkham clearly explains the reasons behind pruning techniques as well as how to apply them.

ABOUT GEORGE E. BROWN

George E. Brown (1917–1980) earned his diploma in horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He returned to Kew in 1956 as an assistant curator. A founding member of the Arboricultural Association, he soon became a recognized authority on trees and shrubs. 

ABOUT TONY KIRKHAM

Tony Kirkham is Head of the Arboretum and Horticultural Services at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew, where he cares for the existing heritage landscape and woody plant collections and maintains the integrity and development of the living scientific plant collections. The latter responsibility has been the impetus for plant collecting trips to Chile, South Korea, Taiwan, Russia, western China, and Japan; many of the trees now growing in the collection originate from seed collected on these trips. Tony lectures internationally, runs workshops, and has published papers on a wide range of subjects. He is married with two children and lives in London.
