A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – May 20, 2019 – Bill Logan on Trees

A book I read recently changed the way I think about pruning, and actually about trees in general in the most profound way: William Bryant Logan’s “Sprout Lands: Tending the Endless Gift of Trees.” Logan is an arborist based in New York City, a member of the faculty at New York Botanical Garden, and the award-winning author of four books. His most recent, “Sprout Lands,” is a 10,000-year journey into our relationship with trees, their impact on our lives, and our culture. We talked about how mankind learned to use trees and evolved alongside them, about pruning tactics like pollarding and coppicing, and also how nearly immortal trees are.
