We have a Japanese maple in our front yard that was desperately in need of trimming. I was referred to Arnie Cornez. He showed up with simple, clean and polished tools. He sharpened his pruning shears, then spayed it with disinfectant. Next he began talking to the tree.
I realized I had a Zen monk here to trim our tree. So I asked if I could videotape him at work and interview him. I learned about the spirituality of aesthetic pruning. Amazing. Check out the video.
