Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Yuki Nara is an Aesthetic Pruner who was born in Japan. She studied with Dennis Makishima who was the first to introduce the art of Aesthetic Pruning to the United States. Yuki has been an Aesthetic Pruning instructor for all levels from beginner to professional. She presently teaches at Merritt College in Oakland, California. Yuki’s work is highly intuitive, and her teaching style is open-hearted. She believes that the integration of philosophy, technique, and a heartfelt connection to the spirit of a tree is essential to the successful practice of Aesthetic Pruning and to the ultimate satisfaction of client, pruner, and tree.
