    Cover, Trees for Problem Landscape Sites — Trees for Hot Sites

This publication is available in PDF format only.

Hot landscape sites require special consideration before trees are planted. Trees can survive, and even thrive, in hot sites if the site is prepared correctly, if heat-tolerant species are selected, and if the trees are properly maintained. A variety of different locations and situations qualify as hot landscape sites.
