Urban Tree Conference: Keynote - An Approach to Pruning you Won’t Forget

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. 

Once you begin pruning trees using the strategies learned in this session you will not regress to the old way. Dr. Edward Gilman of University of Florida will demonstrate practical strategies to increase long-term survival starting when trees are planted. You will be able to step outside immediately after this session and begin pruning in a more sustainable, sensible manner. Good branch architecture results in long-lasting trees.
