Earn CEUs and Build on Your Arboriculture Knowledge with the Tree Pruning BMP

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 for the updated Best Management Practices-Tree Pruning.

A new online quiz worth 1 CEU is available for this BMP!

This BMP provides reasons why pruning should be undertaken, explains pruning types, provides background on pruning cuts, reviews sample pruning specifications, and comments on the timing and necessity of these operations. Topics in this BMP include pruning systems, pruning objectives, a glossary and so much more.

This publication, along with many more resources, are available at

Any educational or preparatory material, whether published by ISA or not, should NOT be considered the sole source of information for an ISA certification examination. This publication and the ISA certification program exams are developed through separate processes and entities.
