What

Achieving a strong structure in a young tree in its first five to seven years is critical to ensure a healthy tree. During this early development period, pruning cuts are small and very little brush is produced. Our Director of Living Collections will reveal how these pruning decisions are made. Learn how to prune correctly as well as become proficient in determining how best to direct the development of a young tree.
