Improve Your Pruning Skills with the BMP – Utility Pruning of Trees


ISA offers a variety of educational materials to help arborists improve their arboricultural knowledge. Each week we will feature a product, or group of products that will enhance your arboriculture education. This week, ISA is featuring Best Management Practices (BMP) - Utility Pruning of Trees by Geoffrey P. Kempter.

This resource can assist utility arborists in enhancing their pruning abilities by describing current best practices in utility tree pruning based on scientific research and proven methodology for the safe and reliable delivery of utility services, while preventing unnecessary injury to trees to the greatest extent possible.

The BMP – Utility Pruning of Trees covers topics that include utility pruning safety, tools and equipment, pruning methods and practices, pruning in remote and rural environments, emergency service restoration and much more.
