Authors:   N. Bassuk, T. Whitlow
Abstract:
Street trees in New York City are exposed to a variety of environmental stress factors. Because of the way in which trees are typically planted, in isolated small openings in the concrete, with the built-up city infrastructure all around them, they often experience water deficits.

Side of the street, surrounding city structures and tree species affected water relations in street trees.
