""Tree Ferns" was not intended to be an identification manual. Its primary purpose is to stimulate interest, expand our knowledge, and bring us up to date on important findings about these elegant plants; for this, the authors are to be commended."
--Barbara Joe Hoshizaki, Pacific Horticulture, Fall 2004
Tree ferns in the landscape command the attention of both devoted gardeners and casual passersby. Their stately form resembles that of the palm tree and evokes a feeling of the quintessentially exotic. This volume is "the" source for information on the living tree ferns. It surveys families, genera, and species, including those suitable for the home garden. It offers up-to-date taxonomy and detailed descriptions as well as in-depth coverage of everything from tree fern use to conservation. In recognition of the horticultural importance of tree ferns, the authors provide extensive cultivation information, including propagation, and diseases and pests.
