Authored by the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers, the Guide for Plant Appraisal, is the professional plant appraiser's how-to manual in the US for determining size, species, condition, and location factors that influence the value of plants.
The guide is a general reference and procedural guide, not a standard, and is not particularly US focused, except in the dollar costings, and provides a useful framework for appraisal in many regions of the world, as the concepts and methods involved are generally not specific to any one area.
This 10th edition of the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers builds on approaches and methods presented in previous editions.
With a more detailed discussion of the appraisal process, as well as identifying the purpose and use of the appraisal, the 10th edition successfully bridges the gap between concept and practice. In addition, through aligning plant appraisal with the concepts and terminology employed in the general practice of appraisal, the Guide for Plant Appraisal adapts general terminology to better fit plant appraisal applications of plant casualties, insurance purposes, real estate transactions, plant condemnation actions, and tree inventories.
New to this edition are additional appendices and a glossary
