This guide is only for qualified line-clearance workers. It is not for homeowners or others who have not been trained properly to work near electric utility lines. However, all people who care about trees should read this guide to learn what pruning practices are best for trees near these lines. The pruning procedures shown are appropriate whether or not the trees are near electric utility lines.
The guidelines are for high-value trees in cities, residential areas, parks, campgrounds, scenic areas and highways, and other places where tree health, beauty, and safety are important.
The guidelines given aim to reduce sprouting, reduce the working time in a tree for the tree worker, increase the time between pruning cycles, and help the trees planted near lines be as healthy, safe, and attractive as possible.
This guide has become the standard for many utility companies and those that provide their tree care services.
A side-by-side English / Spanish version is also available.

A new title from Shigo and Trees, Associates!!Soul of a Tree: Conversations with Alex Shigo on the Nature of Tree Care by Jack Phillips.
Extending the sequence of essays that Alex Shigo and Jack Phillips planned and began together, the series has now been completed. This is a book of Shigo philosophy, research and commentary on trees, their environment and care as imparted by Dr. Shigo to Jack Phillips on their walks through the woods and around a microscope.
This book greatly expands, and replaces, The Nature of Tree Care.
"Why should we bother with this talk of soul? Discovering the inner and communal life of trees can help us to treat them with greater care. We might discover something about ourselves as well."
"Arboriculture is not only the cultivation of trees. It is the cultivation of a community to which we belong."
"Good arboriculture, according to Shigo, is based on understanding how trees grow and survive."
This book would make an excellent companion to Modern Arboriculture. It is written in an understandable conversational style, addressing tree anatomy, biology and care, with a philosophical and environmental perspective as well.
This book is 6" x 9", 52 pages with full color photos throughout.
