HANDBOOK II: A PLANT MATERIALS MANUAL FOR MASSACHUSETTS ROADSIDES

This manual is intended as a practical summary of information related to a number of plant species and techniques for their establishment on Massachusetts roadsides. It expands on a previously issued handbook (August 1972) and contains findings from a 15-year Roadside Development research program. It includes a section on the environment, a plant selection chart, a listing of plants adaptable to Massachusetts roadsides, a discussion of plant establishment techniques, and a section on dormancy in woody plants.
