* The Tree Protection Manual for Builders and Developers (published in October, 1985) went out of print several years ago. Surviving copies of this publication would contain too much obsolete information to be reproduced.

Any recommendations that our agency provides on this topic are based on the book Trees and Development: A Technical Guide to Preservation of Trees During Land Development, written by Nelda Matheny and James R. Clark. You may also wish to consult the appropriate chapter of the online Urban Forestry Manual, which is available at the Urban Forestry South website.
