In a general chapter are included discussions of the diseases common to all kinds of trees, such as samping-off of seedlings, temperature injuries to leaves and woody parts, smoke and gas injuries, wood-rots, and the like. The species of trees affected, the geographic distribution, destructiveness, and symptoms of the different diseases are presented in full.

"The Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture," pronounced by experts to be an absolute necessity for every horticulturist and of tremendous value to every type of gardener, professional and amateur, is completed. "An indispensable work of reference to every one interested in the land and its products, whether commercially or professionally, as a student or an amateur," is the Boston Transcript's characterization of it, while Horticulture adds that "it is very live literature for any one engaged in any department of the horticultural field."

"This really monumental performance will take rank as a standard in its class. Illustrations and text are admirable.... Our own conviction is that while the future may bring forth amplified editions of the work, it will probably never be superseded. Recognizing its importance, the publishers have given it faultless form. The typography leaves nothing to be desired, the paper is calculated to stand wear and tear, and the work is at once handsomely and attractively bound."—New York Daily Tribune.
