Pruning Shade Trees (Spanish)
by Oscar Sanchez, CA

*Seminar will begin in a seminar room and move outdoors for demonstration

We will talk about the importance of pruning a tree and the reasons why we do it. We will talk about it in class and look at drawings of pruning techniques. We will also talk about why topping is bad and the importance of sanitizing tools to stop S Tree Ds. We will look at the structures of trees and identify structural weaknesses and strengths. We will also take a look at several pruning tools and discuss how to use them properly and safely.

TLE seminars are "more advanced than typical conference seminars."
