Availability: - Replaced by a new edition
ISA has developed a series of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the purpose of interpreting tree care standards and providing guidelines of practice for arborists, tree workers, and the people who employ their services.
This BMP describes proper installation and maintenance of cables, braces, guys, and props that can effectively limit the movement of branches, leaders, or entire trees. It also serves as a companion publication for American National Standard for Tree Care Operations—Tree, Shrub and Other Woody Plant Management—Standard Practices (Supplemental Support Systems).
Topics in this BMP include:
• Installation Tools
• Guying Established Trees
• Guying Newly Planted Trees
• Glossary of Terms
