Guided by nature

Welcome to the Aesthetic Pruners Association!  The APA is a non profit association established to promote and develop the craft of aesthetic pruning and support professional pruners in their work.

The APA encourages the growth and development of the aesthetic pruning profession and its business practices.  We maintain a high standard of craftsmanship, sound horticulture practices and artistic expression.  The APA strives to expand awareness and appreciation of aesthetic pruning in the general public and industry professionals.  We work to enhance the science of aesthetic pruning, stimulate the exchange of ideas and technical information and engage art in aesthetic pruning by deepening personal understanding of the artistry of aesthetic pruning.
