Now taking appointments in Portland, OR for small tree (under 10', no ladder or climbing required) pruning. Japanese maples are my favorite, and you can't walk a block in Portland without seeing at least one in dire need of a prune. I'm relatively new to the business, have worked under arborists before, and am currently in the Merritt College aesthetic pruning program. To put this in context, a significant number of folks pruning smaller trees have no training whatsoever in the specifics of fruit tree or aesthetic pruning, but manage to get paid to do it anyway (poorly, that is)! I can teach you pruning basics for an additional fee.

For an estimate, contact: zemah2@protonmail.com.

What is aesthetic pruning, you ask?

"Aesthetic Pruning is the creative interpretation of small trees and shrubs. This living art form combines the artistic skill of the pruner, the essence of a tree, the science of horticulture and the needs of clients and surroundings.

With its foundation in Japanese garden pruning, bonsai and arboriculture, aesthetic pruning incorporates visual art and design principles to work with plant material within its unique setting. Due to the universality of its approach, aesthetic pruning benefits all situations and garden styles.

Aesthetic pruners focus their work on trees and shrubs under 15 feet tall. They are dedicated to the craft of pruning, versed in many styles and have a long term vision with an emphasis on health and beauty."
