Workshop 2:  “Tree Biomechanics: Why We Should Care”
Date:  Friday, 27th April, 2018
Location:  Three Sisters Hall, 901 Prince of Wales Drive, Ottawa, ON, K2C 3K1
Workshop Summary:  This workshop is packed full of advanced information on pruning, don’t miss it!

Ever wondered how and why most trees remain intact while others break apart?  Prune at planting? I thought we didn't do that ~ I will show you the way!  Pruning plays a major role in a tree’s longevity and advanced pruning techniques have a great impact on how the tree responds to gravity, wind and storms.  Ever say to yourself “I think I know how to prune or plant a tree, but I am not exactly sure how to get it on paper so I can show others or write specs”. Here is your opportunity to actively learn to be an informed specification writer using your ANSI A300 Standards.   When it comes to tree pruning, we think we can describe reduction; we know topping when we see it; but now retrenchment? What is it and how can it be used?   Full Prospectus HERE
