Introduction to Horticulture

This guide provides a general overview of horticulture as a science. It will also highlight selected items that will be featured in the Spring 2022 book display.


Forestry concerns the interaction of trees, woodlands or forests with people. It comprises both practice and theory—the management of forest resources for a specific purpose and the scientific study of forest ecosystems, including all aspects of their management. The terms ‘woodland’ and ‘forest’ refer primarily to smaller and larger areas of tree-dominated land respectively, although they can also refer to specific types of forest cover. Reference Citation
