Communication improves professionalism. This workshop is designed to introduce attendees to the process of crafting pruning prescriptions, and to show the results of pruning applied to trees for a decade and longer. Prescriptions are prepared to communicate to both the tree owner and production arborists the objectives of the tree owner, conditions found by the prescriber, and which branches to prune. Many examples are shown indoors and outdoors so you go home with new skills to practice.


Morning topics (indoors)

  • Introduction to prescription pruning
  • Long-term pruning results
  • Preparing pruning prescriptions on young trees

Afternoon topics (indoor and outdoor)

  • Preparing pruning prescription on mature trees
  • Outside exercises: Attendees actively prepare pruning prescriptions under guidance from instructor.
  • Prescribing pruning on young trees
  • Prescribing pruning on mature trees

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! Do yourself and your customers a favor and bring your tree work to another level" ~David Mikulak, ACTC President
