ISA has developed a series of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the purpose of interpreting tree care standards and providing guidelines of practice for arborists, tree workers, and the people who employ their services. This serves as a companion publication for American National Standard for Tree Care Operations Tree, Shrub and Other Woody Plant Management Standard Practices (Pruning).
This BMP provides reasons why pruning is undertaken, explains pruning types and amounts, provides background on pruning cuts, reviews sample pruning specifications, and comments on timing of these operations.
