Structural Tree Pruning Demonstration

July 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


structurally pruned treeStructure is one of the most important aspects of a tree’s health. Many trees, especially those planted around the home, have poor structure since they are open-grown and were never pruned. Despite the tree’s healthy crown from plenty of sunlight, structural defects may be abundant, hazardous, and detrimental to the tree. Structural tree pruning is the development of a dominant, central leader & spacing of “scaffold,” or main branches, along the stem. The sooner you structurally prune your tree, the less likely it will pose a future hazard or face “failure” of tree parts later in life.

Join CFA’s Certified Arborists Ryan Trapani and Zane Lawyer for a demonstration on how to structurally prune a small to medium-sized tree using climbing techniques. You’ll also learn basic pruning terminology, the definition of “good” vs. “poor” form, what makes a tree’s structure hazardous, and more. Learning to prune a tree while it’s young to encourage good form is crucial to the longevity of your tree!
