    Our Presenter - Ed Gilman:

    Ed Gilman is the author of “An Illustrated Guide to Pruning“, arguably the most complete and accessible reference on tree pruning in our industry. This comprehensive text has helped to inform countless professional arborists and tree surgeons on the best practices of training, trimming and pruning trees.


    "I have been doing tree work for over 20 years and thought I knew how to prune a tree! I am only halfway through Ed Gilman's book and it has revolutionized every facet of pruning for me; I can't wait to see what are in the remaining chapters; do not think you have arrived until you read this book. I am really looking forward to hearing Ed in person at this two-day workshop. Do yourself and your customers a favor and bring your tree work to another level" ~David Mikulak, ACTC President

    Thank you to our event sponsor!
