Description: Growing trees and shrubs in nurseries is rewarding. You may wish to grow trees and shrubs for many reasons: 1) reforestation; 2) land stabilization; 3) fire wood (energy); 4) improving water quality; 5) urban landscapes; 6) providing shade; 7) producing fruits or nuts. If you enjoy growing plants, you are more likely to produce better trees and shrubs (Figure 1.1). In this book, we intend to provide basic biology and simple, effective techniques to grow trees and shrubs. Although we will discuss growing new trees and shrubs from seeds, cuttings, and grafts, we will refer to them all simply as "seedlings." Moreover, we will refer to trees and woody shrubs simply as "trees." Dari version

Keywords: nurseries, tree and shrub seedlings, Afghanistan
