Preface

METRIA 6 came to pass as a result of the joint efforts of the Metropolitan Tree Improvement Alliance executive board and the Holden Arboretum. As always METRIA has been concerned about disseminating information which will assist practitioners, educators and researchers and to ensure a higher quality of life in our metropolitan areas. Trees, of course, play a major role in maintaining and increasing the quality of life enjoyed by our urban population. Numerous studies support this contention. The citizenry is even willing to pay more for a home with trees on the property or in the immediate area. How much more of a"vote of confidence" could there be for our work? Thanks again to the primary members of the organizing committee including Peter Bristol, Paul Specter and C.W. Elliott Payne of Holden Arboretum and Drew Todd, Peter Bristol and myself representing METRIA.

T. Davis Sydnor
