Description: Following a severe August, 1990, tornado that struck Kane, Kendall, and Will Counties in Illinois, a consortium of concerned federal, state and university agencies decided to prepare a disaster mitigation handbook to serve the 20 states of the Northeastern Area. This second edition of Storms over the Urban Forest has been expanded to serve the needs of all 50 states. Emphasizing practicality, this manual is intended first, to assist community governmental agencies to prepare for natural disasters and second, to recover from the subsequent loss of vegetation. Throughout the document, the use of proper tree maintenance and tree planting techniques are emphasized.
