Pruning Essentials for the Landscape

The branches a tree is growing today determine how it looks decades or centuries later. Don’t doom your plant from the very beginning; instead learn essential pruning techniques for woody landscape plants that will set them up for success. This class will discuss how pruning can impact plant growth, health, and aesthetics through proper techniques and timing, and how improper pruning could create long-term problems. Some simple guidelines and plant knowledge will help students learn to avoid common mistakes and prune like a pro.
