Tree Pruning Workshop

This is a virtual workshop conducted on Zoom. The instructor is master gardener, Bill Johnson.

Are you a pruning novice? Do you want to feel more confident when pruning?  Take the mystery out of this essential gardening activity by learning some simple rules.

The course will cover what to look for before pruning, what and where to cut and- most importantly- why.  The workshop also covers pruning tools, which will make your efforts easier and could be items already in your home. Pictures and samples will be used during the class.

After the workshop, you should feel ready to tackle many pruning needs.  Develop a “pruner’s eye” so when you walk around parks and sidewalks you can see both what others did well and not so well.  Learn from the mistakes and successes of other pruners so you can do an excellent job for your trees and bushes.
