Review Arboretum America A Philosophy of the Forest Arboretum America A Philosophy of the Forest Summary ô 9 Diana Beresford-Kroeger ã 9 Read Combining both hands on practicality and garden philosophy Diana Beresford Kroeger a self described renegade scientist appeals to the hearts and minds of gardeners everywhere Arboretum America's goal is both lofty and down to earth the salvation of the planet through the planting of trees There are many books on both of these subjects Some warn some inform while others meditate on the disappearance of the forests or the meaning of trees Few books though touch on so many aspects of trees including ways to use them in gar.
