Arboriculture is the science and art of developing, caring for and using trees, shrubs, and other woody plants. In physical product development, arboriculture can create and manage products made from wood or other plant-based materials; this includes everything from furniture and cabinetry to paper products and musical instruments. The goal of arboriculture is to create durable and aesthetically-pleasing products. To achieve this, arboriculturists must have a deep understanding of the material they are working with and the manufacturing process. In addition, they must be able to identify defects and determine how to correct them. By carefully managing the development process, arboriculturists can ensure that their products meet the highest quality standards.
