Trees of Power : Ten Essential  Arboreal Allies, Paperback / softback Book

Trees of Power : Ten Essential Arboreal Allies Paperback / softback

Description

Trees are our allies in healing the world. Partnering with trees allows us to build soil, enhance biodiversity, increase wildlife populations, grow food and medicine, and pull carbon out of the atmosphere, sequestering it in the soil. Trees of Power explains how we can work with these arboreal allies, specifically focusing on propagation, planting, and individual species.

Author Akiva Silver is an enthusiastic tree grower with years of experience running his own commercial nursery.

In this book he clearly explains the most important concepts necessary for success with perennial woody plants.

It s broken down into two parts: the first covering concepts and horticultural skills and the second with in-depth information on individual species.

You ll learn different ways to propagate trees: by seed, cuttings, grafting, layering, or with cuttings.

These time-honoured techniques make it easy for anyone to increase their stock of trees, simply and inexpensively.

Ten chapters focus on the specific ecology, culture, and uses of different trees, ones that are common to North America and in other temperate parts of the world: Chestnut: The Bread Tree Apples: The Magnetic Centre Poplar: The Homemaker Ash: Maker of Wood Mulberry: The Giving Tree Elderberry: The Caretaker Hickory: Pillars of Life Hazelnut: The Provider Black Locust: The Restoration Tree Beech: The Root Runner Trees of Power fills an urgent need for up-to-date information on some of our most important tree species, those that have multiple benefits for humans, animals, and nature.

It also provides inspiration for new generations of tree stewards and caretakers who will not only benefit themselves, but leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Trees of Power is for everyone who wants to connect with trees.

It is for the survivalist, the gardener, the homesteader, the forager, the permaculturist, the environmentalist, the parent, the schoolteacher, the farmer, and anyone who feels a deep kinship with these magnificent beings.
