Book Recommendation

May 16, 2011 in Uncategorized by admin

Elmer Avenue Landscape Architect Guy Stivers is passionate about sustainable design. While discussing the design of Elmer Avenue on the Alumni Connection’s tour of this site, Guy recommended those interested in sustainably to study Forestry, especially Urban Forestry. He recommended as a fundamental text, Up From Roots by James Urban.


I’ve bought the book and I’ve found it to be a marvelous combination of theory and practical instruction. I was told by a colleague that this is a text for the Arborist certification program.

Happy Reading,
