Excerpt from The Planter's Guide: A Practical Essay on the Best Method of Giving Immediate Effect to Wood by the Transplanting of Large Trees and Underwood
Effect to Wood as intelligible as possible, I have, in the following pages, considered it under three general heads.
First: I have given a history of the art of re moving wood, from the earliest times down to the present; from which it appears, that it has always been vague and fortuitous, at variance with what we know of the laws of nature, and the anatomy of plants, and, for the most part, both unsuccessful and expensive.
Secondly: I have attempted to discover some plain and rational theory, founded in nature and experience, for the guidance of the planter, and which may tend to raise it to the rank of a useful art.
Thirdly: I have endeavoured to deduce from this theory such a practice as shall ensure success, by in some sort precluding contingency; and also, to diminish the expense, by one half at least of the present amount.
