The workshop will also include species factors in management choices, managing client/homeowner expectations, identifying and managing structural defects, and comparing work techniques to accomplish pruning. Also included is a demonstration of different cabling techniques using both steel (static) and dynamic cabling systems and a discussion of their role in tree preservation.
