#pillsofarboriculture: Pruning ornamental trees


Emanuele Capelli, Formazione 3T, explains the general intervention behaviour needed when pruning ornamental trees. When cutting parts of the crown one needs to take into consideration the needs of the tree itself, as well as its location. There are various kinds of pruning and various reasons for intervention: operators can be called for aesthetic-, containment-, reduction-, or prevention pruning.


Ezio Rochira, Formazione 3T, presents “video-pills” that shed some light on trees and on the operators who manage them: arborists. Who are they? What do they do? What does it mean to manage trees in an urban context, or to prune and fell trees in tree-climbing? Which emergency measures can be undertaken? What are the extra cares needed while working on trees in an urban context populated by many vehicles? How should an ornamental tree be pruned?
