The start of a tree’s life has a large impact on its long-term health and stability. Bryan will help you look at the architecture of a young tree from tip of branch to root collar. You will learn to evaluate branching patterns and decide upon appropriate pruning to minimize weak branching and maximize the tree’s strength and health.
