This part of the A300 standards applies to pruning and trimming operations.  Part 1 Pruning addresses:

  • Pruning practices
  • Pruning objectives (includes vista/view enhancement and structural enhancement)
  • Pruning methods (types)
  • Palm pruning
  • Utility pruning 

A300 Pruning standards recognize four basic pruning methods for pruning:

  • Clean: Selective pruning to remove one or more of the following parts: dead, diseased, and/or broken branches.
  • Thin: Selective pruning to reduce density of live branches
  • Raise: Selective pruning to provide vertical clearance.
  • Reduce: Selective pruning to decrease height and/or spread (consideration must be given to the ability of a species to tolerate reduction pruning)
