CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Tropical Trees: Propagation and Planting Manuals

This Manual is the first in a new series of readable, illustrated handbooks for propagating and planting tropical trees.

The series is designed to provide clear and concise information on how to select, grow, plant and care for tropical trees. The Manuals are intended for anyone interested in growing trees, from the small-holder to the experienced forester, in both humid and drier areas.

Manual 1 is concerned with rooting cuttings in order to multiply trees vegetatively. Farmers have used vegetative propagation for centuries in growing tropical food crops. It is a standard technique for producing improved rubber trees, and is also now used for tea, coffee, oil-palm and other crops. But growing more and better indigenous trees may be the most far-reaching contribution to sustainable land use that vegetative propagation can play. It facilitates the quicker ‘domestication’ of these ‘wild’ species, encouraging both smaller ad larger growers to tap the multiplicity of potential benefits offered by tropical trees.

This manual gives, clear, step-by-step instructions on the rooting of tree cuttings, including:
  • choosing the best trees to propagate
  • producing good cuttings from stockplants
  • constructing a favourable environment for propagation
  • rooting and handling leafy cuttings

The procedures described in this Manual can be used with the most woody species to provide diverse clonal mixtures. Such superior planting stock will help to fulfil the potential of multiple usefulness offered by tropical trees, while encouraging the conservation of genetic resources.
