Aesthetic (Fine) Pruning
One of the other parameters that I have been trying to find identification for is that of 'aesthetic pruning' which in the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) is termed 'fine' pruning.
A number of websites are geared to both terms and seem to indicate roughly the same thing.
excepting that none of them explain what that 'thing' is. This would indicate that it is industry driven, call yourself what ya wanna be... or should it be market driven? What do garden owners want and what would they believe in?
What would be the job description, and skills needed to be either or both, if there is a difference, and is there one that is more apt for the Japanese garden?
Some web sites even separate them based only on what height of tree is being pruned.
once again, i ponder and muse over what the definitions are, and should there be an industry standard developed?
like,... who ya gonna call, when the garden needs trusting care? what would you be looking for? experiences? keywords? education?
