Palmers Manual of Trees, Shrubs & Climbers. By Stanley J Palmer.
273 page book in 2nd hand condition. Name written on inside cover. Creasing on front cover. Well illustrated.

Trees are more than beautiful: Trees/shrubs/plants of all kinds play a big role in the ecological balance & are continually engaged in the battle against air, water, visual & mental pollution. By the shade they cast in summer & thru transpiration, trees help cool the air.They release air richer in oxygen & freer of contaminants after their foliage has screened dust & pollutants from the atmosphere. Extensive plantings along freeways in parts of the USA have been effective smog fighters as the fresh air from wooded areas dilutes smog build up. Plants protect the soil, shelter it from strong wind & falling rain, & hold it together with their roots. Our topsoil is preserved & the burden of silt reduced from our lakes, rivers, streams & reservoirs. Where there is excessive noise, proper landscaping can effectively reduce the problem. Trees & shrubs can lower the sound level of a heavily traveled highway to a quiet suburban street. Leaves & stems break up sound waves, change their direction & reduce their intensity. Live partitions of green growing plants are used in modern offices to effect a dramatic decrease in sound, add beauty & freshen the air. Instinctively nature covers all kinds of ugliness with some form of vegetation. In this favoured country of unspoiled natural beauty-mountains, lakes, rivers, forests & beaches, its inhabitants are privileged to own land on which to build their homes & create a green landscape of our choice. Every square metre of green lawn, every tree or shrub not only brings satisfaction, well being, & prosperity to its owner, but contributes to an environment in which we are healthier, happier and more content. If this book can help bring this about, it will achieve the purpose for which it has been written.
