Establishing Strong Architecture in Young Trees
Taking the time to assess the framework of young trees at planting is an often neglected and crucial step in ensuring their future health, as correcting structural defects in large, mature trees can be a risky business. We will review sound tree selection that matches habit with function, and provide useful tips for addressing unrealistic client expectations during the planning/design process. Jen will also present the markers of healthy tree architecture and demonstrate effective pruning techniques using her 10-step guide for correcting structural defects in the early years.

SPEAKER: Jen Kettell, Radiant Leaf Consulting
