Central New York ReLeaf 2017 Urban Forestry Workshop
Tree Pruning, Architecture & Longevity: A Practical Approach
Speaker: Dr. Edward Gilman
Tuesday, October 24
8:15am-4:00pm (Registration begins at 7:45am)
Arrowhead Lodge, 9248 McKinley Ridge Road, Brewerton, NY
The purpose of this workshop is to describe and demonstrate current structural pruning strategies to improve architecture on young, medium-aged, and older trees. Professor of Urban Trees and Landscape Plants at the University of Florida, Dr. Edward F. Gilman, will conduct the workshop, focusing on the short- and long-term response of trees to pruning and showing examples from across the globe. He will discuss not only how to improve structure and reduce the likelihood of failure, but also how the tree is likely to respond, incorporating current tree biomechanics research and experience.
This is an interactive hands-on program where you will watch trees being pruned and provide input. Active participation is expected of attendees. Trees of various sizes will be pruned in the field.
Sponsored by Central NY ReLeaf, NYSDEC Urban Forestry, NYS Urban Forestry Council, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County
