- thinning to promote diameter growth
- how much space each species needs and how to measure it

Participants will receive a set of notes via email prior to the workshop and have the opportunity to ask questions during and after the presentation. Those registered will also be eligible for some ongoing personal email and phone advice for the rest of the pruning season.
