Objectives in tree care (DE/EN)

Do we want to cut off everything that is “imperfect” on old trees or can we also tolerate damage and defects?
What is the goal in tree care?
The new European Tree Pruning Standard - tree care between species and
Conservation, convenience and conscious action.
A food for thought about the subjective perception of beauty and attractiveness,
the dignity of aging, in which we see scars, fractures and cavities on the one hand
inspire and yet follow the trend towards the heavily cleaned, homogeneous, almost
already contradict antiseptic trees.
What does the ideal image of a tree look like?
What damage can, want or must we tolerate?
Symmetrical, flawless and beautiful?
A long overdue discussion.
