Brian Kempf, Wood Architecture, Visalia, CA
9:30am Pruning is a process not a onetime event
We present a process of quickly evaluating structure and developing a pruning plan in seconds. It is easy to communicate to the crew and customers. We show pruning on the largest branches toward the edge of the crown to shorten limbs at just the right place. And we show appropriate use of reduction, removal, and heading cuts using the new ANSI A300 pruning standard. We finish with a brief introduction to writing specifications using the new ASNI language.
