Arborists face the challenges of creating strong, stable structures within trees and reducing the risk that trees present. Identifying conditions of concern and creating pruning strategies can moderate risk to an acceptable level and minimize the need for extreme intervention. This session will demonstrate how to create strategies to reduce potential risk situations with pruning procedures to design safer trees for your client.
