I agree with you on this, however, telling a client that you are not going to trim them until later and essentially not trimming them at all (in their eyes) are two different wars. Some clients you can get away with just doing the selective pruning as they will never notice, others are so set in their ways you will never get through to them, so you choose your battles.All that really needs to be done is 1.) remove crossing branches 2.) remove broken/decayed branches.
