Urban Tree Conference: Pruning for Performance and Prevention

Trees are a valuable asset to nature, but their value is often overlooked in urban settings. The six-day, 18 session virtual Urban Tree Conference for industry professionals and avid gardeners will cover all aspects of urban tree planning, implementation and management. 

How do I remedy poor branching habit? What do I do with these codominant stems? Corrective pruning has many implications including tree structure, health, response to damage and practice. Pruning to improve performance and preventing failure should be a major consideration for every arborist. This session by Lindsey Purcell of Purdue University will provide details on pruning objectives to help arborists determine the best strategies for promoting sustainable growth consistent with current standards by using case situations.

Registration opens November 13, 2020.
