comment secure ftp to specific directory on Ubuntu?
www-data user(and group) is account under which your web server is running. So granting write access to that user/group should be considered carefully. Of course in cases like setting up WebDAV access, or uploading files you need to grant write access to www-data, but you are securing system in other ways.(in case of WebDAV: TLS + authentication; in case of uploads: separate directory outside of public path).

Of course you can go with www-data group with write permission and add scpuser (in an example joe) to www-data group, but in my opinion it would be less secure.

user www-data is still the owner of the dir and has appropriate permissions. Only group have changed.

You can create for instance scp group, change your scp-accessible dir owner:group to www-data:scp, and grant write permssions to scp group.

comment how i can Clipping the result of “find” command?
No, no. I use angle brackets only to indicate that path_to_skip is placeholder for real path: -path ./dir/to/skip -prune. Anyway look at Iain's answer.
