The German Tree Care Days are the largest trade fair for tree care in Europe. Some of the most important lectures were filmed and can be viewed here.
Since it was founded in 1993, the German Tree Care Days in Augsburg have developed into an extraordinary European advanced training event in the field of tree care. Specialist conference, climbing forum around the tree care fair: This triad makes up the event and attracts more visitors from Europe and overseas to the Fugger town every year.
On all three days of the event, representatives of associations and organisations, municipal experts, experts, scientists, landscape architects and of course the arborists themselves come together to gain the latest knowledge on neutral terrain. The focus is on the healthy and sustainable use of trees: “All our participants share the desire to protect and preserve the tree. This basic attitude is known everywhere at the German Tree Care Days," says Professor Dr. Dirk Dujesiefken, organizer of the tree care event.

The simulation of natural fractures – The Why, When & How – Philosophy, Theory
This further study discusses the tolerance of pruning-stubs from natural an
artificial breaks – along with coronet cuts – as an alternative to conventional
pruning measures – to exceed the accepted compartmentalisation capacities
(after CODIT principle) of the given tress species.
The types of tree cuts described in conventional tree- care literature simulate the
natural fracture and shedding processes that generally no longer function beyond
10 cm in diameter (Hirons & Thomas, 2018).
Research suggests that cuts should not exceed 5 cm in diameter for weakly
compartmentalizing species and 10 cm for strongly compartmentalizing species
(Stobbe, Dujesiefken & Kleist, 1998; Dujesiefken und Stobbe, 2002).
Artificial fractures and coronet cuts simulate natural fractures with no limit to
diameter by replicating broken stumps with cracks and jagged edges as observed
in nature (Fay, 2003).
However, the variety and unpredictable nature of fractures make them difficult to
