Clearing a short section

clearing short section illustration

Clearing a short section on the trunk just below the beginning of the permanent nursery canopy can make it easier for future crews to prune. Future crews will know that branches below this point are temporary and those above are permanent. Permanent branches are pruned differently than temporary branches. Your most talented crew members are the best personnel to send in for this job.
