Join us to share information with Gordon Mann about recent updates made to the ANSI A300 pruning and Z133 safety standards, and how to write specifications that align with the standards and resolve the needs of your clients' trees. The methods of pruning have been replaced with  meeting the objective, using systems and the 3 ways to  remove branches. There is more focus on the number and size of branches to be removed than the amount of foliage to be removed. Every  pruning cut wound a tree. The benefits of pruning have to exceed the wounding.
